This is rad! I am happy to announce (hopefully Venture is cool with this..) that Venture Snowboards are back!! Not that they really went anywhere, however the brand will be pressing boards again for the 2016/2017 season. I plan to meet with Lisa and Klem the husband and wife team and founders of Venture next week at SIA and look forward to sharing more great shred industry news.
For the past 16 years the Branner’s have been cranking out whats arguably the best big mountain snowboards on the market. When you live in Silverton, I would assume that one’s focus is on riding powder and backcountry. This is not a snowboard manufacture cranking out park boards, instead these are what real mountain men, and women prefer to ride in rocky terrain.
I have a lot of friends that will be happy to jump back on Venture splits and solids in 2017. This is EXACTLY what snowboarding needs right now, and I’m not talking about the industry but the actual riders, the people that live breathe and eat snow typically have one thing in common. The own a Venture product.
If you’re not familiar with Venture checkout our review of their 2016 Zelix, which will likley end up actually being the 2017 Zelix instead, maybe a different colored top sheet?
And as a surfer, well nothing compares to the Venture Storm we tested back when we were based in Crested Butte, CO. That review can be found below.
Thanks Lisa and Klem ( everyone misses ya )
