Douk snowbaords are the only brand based, and manufactured in the UK. Ran by a small team of snowboarders building what they want to ride, and offering their customers more input into the design of their board than any other brand.
At the helm of this growing brand is company founder, David. With a history of fine cabinet making and working around the world on ski seasons David merged his skills and passion together to start the brand three years ago.
The boards are hand made in the UK workshop by David and his team from stage one, making the wooden core, building the board up with various techniques and using different materials to set the board to ride the mountain as their client wishes. It really was a inspiring day to see these boards develop out of what started as a pile of wood, to a complete board ready to hit the hill.
The truly unique thing these guys offer is a fully customisable top and bottom sheet on your own board, so not only can you pick how your board rides, but also how it looks. Something that many of us would love to have.
With members of the team being designers, if the client cant get the artwork to where they want it to be the team help out and get that perfect design made up for them. all done in workshop, printed and made up in the UK.
I don't know about you guys but I would love to be riding one of these boards down the hill this winter, and I can see great things for the team at DOUK snowboards over the next few years.
You can see some of the custom designs they have made over on the website: www.DoukSnow.com or facebook page: /Douksnow
