Endeavor Snowboards Board of Directors B.O.D.

Endeavor Snowboards is a Canadian company that has caught our interest over the past few years. Their attention to detail and focus on pushing the envelope in both board design and aesthetics drew us in.  The founders are deeply seated in snowboarding’s roots.  We’d never seen one in person but everything we’d heard about the … Continue reading
