Though it is, in fact, summer here in the northern hemisphere, the other half of the planet is in the dead of winter. Which means that fresh powder is just a quick flight away – so it’s never a bad time to think about picking up some new snowboarding gear. Like, for instance, Franco Snowshapes’ custom snowboards.

These aren’t your ordinary boards, though – not by a long shot. These ones are handmade and tailored specifically to your desires by owner-operator Mikey Franco himself. But it goes even deeper than that. You see, if you’re not entirely sure what you want, the brand offers a “Rider Genome Profile” that takes into account your riding style, biometrics, and environment to create the perfect board for you. Not good enough? Well, there’s a third option: you can actually hit the slopes for two day with Mikey Franco – who has 20+ years of guiding experience – and he will personally evaluate your riding before picking out a specific shape and materials for your board, which you will then get to take out for another two days in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Franco Snowshapes’ offerings start at $1,699.

Purchase: $1,699+
