About Launch Snowboards:

With industry expertise and a distinct thoughtfulness towards the craft of board making, Launch has sold out every season, doubled its production each year and most importantly, earned the praise and loyalty of professional and beginner riders alike. Understanding that being a rider transcends the slopes, Launch also has a growing apparel line of tees, hoodies, cuts and sews, headwear and limited edition lines.


The Launch philosophy is simple – to pay attention to the essentials of construction and shape – and is grounded by years of research. Launch is among the first and still one of just a few companies to use bamboo in its boards. With the utmost value for durability and responsiveness, Launch boards have snap, hold pop, and have wider stance options. From novice riders to professionals, the feedback is unanimous: there is no experience quite like riding Launch. Visit online here:
