PLP Custom Woody Powder Boards is a project born in 2012 that combines the passion for powder and the desire to build a snowboard just for the powder days.
Our boards are unique and handmade one by one using only quality wood and epoxy resin.
The desire to create a board just for powder days pushes us to experiment new shapes with bigger dimensions than a standard board. We think of the future inspiring us from the past.
To make a more exclusive products, we collaborate with talented artists who paint by hand the graphics directly onto the top sheet.
The realization of such an ambitious and visionary project needs great passion for the mountain, powder and snowboards.We are PLP.
We use only the finest quality materials, supplied by local companies including marine birch plywood phenolic, bamboo and okumè, which give our boards more durability and a special water resistant and weatherproof.
The PLP Powderboards are built with different types of lamination, three or two layers of wood glued through layers of epoxy and 290 grams of fiberglass or 420 grams carbon fiber.
The multi-layer sandwich is formed by our hand made press where it remains under pressure for at least 48 hours.
The graphics of each boards are painted directly on the top surface and covered with two layers of resin.The collaborations with young artists make our boards unique, perfect for a powder day in the mountains, or to hang over the fireplace and show proudly to your friends.

The PLP Powderboards project started in 2012 when a group of friends began looking for an alternative way to surf powder slopes with gradients of 30% on which the traditional freeride boards struggle to float. Ettore Barabino, Paolo Nelzi, Gigi Lozzi, Stefano Passerone and Gionata Craviotto built the first press in the laboratory of Nelzi Skateramps. Over the years Ettore Barabino and Dario Zaramella continue with the project making a new press with which they are currently produced our Powderboards. Without forgetting Adam West, our Australian friend shaper and event planner
