The brand was conceived in 1989 in founder Bert LaMar’s garage. Bert was a skater who dropped into the scene in the early 70’s dominating skate contests against now legends of the industry. Snowboarding legend Tom Sims noticed the young ripper and offered him a spot on his team. The youngest shredder to ever have a signature board, Bert went on to win three straight World Cup Events and the overall World Cup Halfpipe title.

Bert forever changed the snowboarding industry; his vision of elevated product and aggressive advertising created controversial hype and LaMar quickly became the most dominating brand on the hill. Over the years, LaMar has backed a solid list of pro riders including; Mike Ranquet, Kevin Jones, Jimmy Halopoff, Wes Makepeace, Megan Pischke and Tricia Byrnes among others.

LaMar has been terrorizing the snowboarding industry for over 20 years and we aren’t going anywhere.

And the abuse continues…

Winterstick boards

The Winterstick story began in the late ’60s when Winterstick founder Dimitrije Milovich met up with New Jersey surfboard shaper, Wayne Stoveken. Stoveken, whom Milovich believes to be the first snowboarder, had started making snow-surfboard designs, and he showed Milovich a few construction ideas. Inspired by Stoveken’s designs and also by the now-famous surf film Five Summer Stories, Milovich started making his own snowboards. In 1972, Milovich dropped out of college and moved to Utah to work full time on developing his new designs in the Wasatch backcountry. Later that year, he patented the first modern snowboard, the Swallowtail.

Avalanche snowboards have been around since the early 1980s, well before most of the general population had even heard of snowboarding. Avalanche Snowboard has been right there as part of the snowboarding culture since the beginning, and take pride in continuing to make boards that help snowboarders step it up!

Chuck Barfoot, started making snowboards out of Sims’ garage in 1977. Apparently Barfoot was the one who actually made the snowboards at that point, and he also worked with Bob Webber. Bob Webber came up with something called „The Yellow Banana“. Barfoot apparently tweaked it a bit and came up with „The Flying Yellow Banana“. It’s sold under the Sims name as the „Skiboard“.

1997, Sims borrowed from skateboarding technology to create his own version of the snowboard. Sims snowboards came from an idea he had in shop class when to glued carpet to the top of a piece of wood and aluminum sheeting to the bottom of the board

This same year, Jake Burton Carpenter finished up school in New York and moved to Vermont to start making snowboards out of his garage. When he was a kid, he had been a big fan of the Snurfer, which he said he had been modifying since high school. In 1977, he founded Burton Boards, his own snowboarding company which is still successful today.
