04 Mar, 2011


Since 2003, Academy Snowboards has focused on building quality snowboards, progression to improve their technology and individuals which make all the characters in their family special.  Academy knows we have one thing in common:  the love for snowboarding and riding with our friends.  They continue to offer the scholarship program to help kids learn something new and get out and shred which means 1% of sales go to the scholarship.

The boards are made in Austria and they stick with four models that define the riders, riding styles and vision of the brand.  For profiles, Academy does Reverse Camber which is 1 degree progression from center and reverse flat which is 0 degree flat center to 1 degree progression.
