Custom and Limited Edition snowboards, splitboards and skis, meticulously crafted in our workshop on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
We carry several options for original wood marquetry designs to adorn each Limited Edition build. Designs change yearly.
Or commission a custom piece of rideable art.
Every KINDRED is manufactured in house. We apply strict quality control to all components and the final products. Acute attention to detail means you can trust the build quality in even the most demanding conditions.
We personalize flex and feel by utilizing the highest quality composites, like carbon fibre and fibreglass, in varying weights and weaves to suit each build.
We build cores in house using select Vancouver Island Cypress.
Marquetry topsheets include an array of FSC certified domestic and exotic wood species.
Your Brand Here. Looking for a unique gift, prize, or promo item? We can build custom branded batches of skis or snowboards featuring your company, club or organization's logo.
By using low VOC Entropy bio resins, locally sourced Cypress lumber, and minimizing plastics, we aim to reduce our footprint as much as possible.
"This season I toured throughout the Rockies and Monashees on The Kindred Cumberland Gap with a carbon fibre upgrade. I love that weight is cut on the up track without sacrificing stiffness. It is extremely responsive and inspires confidence with every turn - the ultimate splitboard for charging big lines at high speeds.
It makes me want to go bigger every time I come to a halt in the flats and look back at my prize! If you're looking to push your free riding to the next level this is the splitboard for you."Ty Turner
"Pillows Stacks. Single Slashes. Mogul Methods. Mandatory Straight Lines. Hot Pow. Yesterday's Champagne. TOMORROW MORNING. Switch stalefish. Buttered Knuckles. Sled Laps. Safety Meetings. Cab 2's. Corduroy. Switch Toe Carve Swaps. Holy Crails. Hard-ways. Rope Ollies. XL Jumps. Down-Flat-Down-Flat-Downs. Hard Charging. Easy Riding... The Tsolum is a samurai sword, cutlass and jungle machete all in one; beautiful enough for my mantle, technical in close combat and built for slashing your way to powder paradise. The only thing I don't like about my Kindred is taking my headphones out on the chairlift to talk about it."Andrew Wood
"My Kindred powder skis are amazing. They keep me afloat despite my weighing over 275lbs. I visited the workshop, watching the process in stages, and know first hand the work that goes into them. Kindred is a go-to source for anyone who appreciates fine hand-crafted equipment that performs - although my wife thinks they are too pretty to ski on and should be hung as artwork!"Steve Touhey, Two Eagles Lodge, BC
"My Kindred Black Creek is one of the best boards I have ridden in my 20+ years of snowboarding. The product description is totally accurate - it's a quiver-filler and one-stop-shop suitable for directional riding in most any conditions. I'm an aggressive rider who demands a lot of my board and it always does what I ask it to. It's my go-to stick."Rob Pickering
"Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to both of you for all the care and work you put into making Hanna's board. She has used it several times now and it looks great and rides great too! She was a little unsure our first time at the mountain and had her old board ready to switch back to, just incase it took awhile for her to feel comfortable on your board, but she felt comfortable and loved the feel of your board right away :) The rest of her family and friends that helped purchase the present were very pleased with the results as well. My only problem is now I have board jealousy and will have to get one for myself someday ;)"Lyle
"The artwork on this board is outstanding. I absolutely love everything about it! I haven't had the snowboard for that long but I have been getting quite a lot of compliments!
The performance is impeccable, it is exactly what I was looking for in a board! It handles everything I have thrown at it! It makes my life easier in choppy conditions, clings to the steeps, landings off of cliffs are stable, blows through powder and on groomers I can fly even faster! It's hard to find top quality boards made for women and this board is perfect."Niki Kelly
"Thanks guys, I am absolutely in love with your work!! The board is what I was hoping for and more. That graphic is done so precisely, the topcoat is so smooth, the flex and shape I can already feel holding crazy edge and popping lips at mach 10 😍 Definitely worth the wait."Jip VanderLinden
