HANDMADE

Our boards are unique and handmade one by one using only quality wood and epoxy resin.

INNOVATION

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.

MANEUVERABILITY

SATISFACTION

The PLP powder boards have a surface ranging from 130% to 180% more than a normal freeride snowboard. The result is an incredible and easy floating experience especially after a big dump. Have you ever experience riding a wave of snow?

Thanks to the big progressive nose (60/90 cm), combined with the POWDER CAMBER, the PLP Powderboards give you the sensation to gain speed even in the deepest condition you can imagine, without moving your balance on the back foot.

Despite the big size of our shape (the lengths are always more than two meters), the PLP Powderboards are docile and easy to ride. Our tester,  including snowboard instructors and coaches, were shocked by the ease of handling of these boards.

When other snowboarders sink into meters of fresh snow ,you can float effortlessly with all the balance on the back foot, the PLP Powderboards ensure an easy surfing experience full of satisfaction that allows the rider to enjoy the ride, nature and the view.

BE FRIENDLY TO THOSE WHO ENJOY YOUR WORK AND FRIENDLIER TO THOSE WHO ATTACK IT.

what-we-do

MATERIALS

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.

CONSTRUCTION

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.

GRAPHICS

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.

  • TOTAL CUSTOMIZATION

    Have you ever desired to make the board of your dreams by choosing the length, shape and graphics? PLP Powderboards is able to create the shape of your dreams.

  • SHAPE TUTORING

    PLP Powderboards leads you step by step in the design of your custom board, helping you to optimize and balance every choice in terms of shape.

  • CONSTRUCTION VIDEO

    In order to guarantee to you riders a 360° experience, we film every stage of the construction of your board and produce a short video for you.

Our boards are for exclusive use in fresh snow and therefore are edgeless. Each board is finished with a sharp resin cap

Our bases are realized in phenolic wood and must be treated with a thick layer of wax possibly not scraped at every use. In this way it enables the wood to breath and stay alive.

Each board of the collection comes with bushings type “SPIDER” and universal discs. Ready to use.

We can fulfill your every request.

DESIGN WORKS IF IT’S AUTHENTIC, INSPIRED, AND HAS A CLEAR POINT OF VIEW. IT CAN’T BE A COLLECTION OF INPUT

PLP crew

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
