PowderJet’s Build Your Own Snowboard Workshops Coming to Portland


New England based PowderJet Snowboards announced that it’s bringing their popular Build Your Own Wooden Snowboard Workshops to Portland Oregon. This rare west coast class will be held at ADX/Portland on Saturday, March 21, 2015. During the one day class, participants will be hand shaping and sanding their PowderJet blank, as well as adding custom graphics and artwork for a truly one of a kind board. Registration is currently open on the PowderJet website and there are limited spaces still available.

“Response to the classes here in Maine and Vermont has been fantastic. We’ve gotten so many requests to bring the classes out west, and we’re stoked to have the opportunity to put this together. Hopefully we’ll get a chance to sneak in a little riding time while we’re out there,” founder Jesse Loomis says. “We’re psyched to bring these classes every place people request them”

Founded in Vermont in 2009, PowderJet Snowboards builds wooden powder boards on a custom basis. The boards are hand built from start to finish and designed for backcountry and powder riding. In 2014 PowderJet became the first snowboard company to offer board building classes, teaching workshops at the shop they share with Grain Surfboards on the Maine coast. About as far from the mainstream industry as you can get, PowderJet is the future primitive snowboard company.
