As the cofounder of glissade, I've been deeply involved
in all aspects of snowboarding for more years than I
can remember. From epoxy formulation and carbon placement,
to dealing with clueless industry tough guys who wanted
us to make "their" snowboards, I have watched
this sport grow out of control. We built our factory
from the ground up. Back in the day there was nobody
out there to help us out. We had to invent and develop
all of our own machinery, presses, molds and construction
processes. I have spent countless hours refining board
shapes and developing unique materials that make our
boards better than any other. I grew up skiing, skating,
and surfing and started snowboarding on a woody with
rope holes in the nose. But now I prefer our 168 Brosif.
It works on just about anything that nature has to offer.
The brosif easily handles high speeds and my sketchy
landings. Ditch your current board that was glued together
in China, and try one of ours.
