About Us


Our Approach

Our love for snow has created Affinity…


After spending the past 20 years in the background as shop kids, am riders, factory workers, entry level marketers and company representatives; we branch out this season to company creators and we bring to the world our new company… Affinity Snowboards.

Affinity was created to bridge the gap between creativity, technology and riding. Our boards feature simple shapes and camber profiles but as we have learned, it’s what’s inside that counts.

That’s why we put in countless testing hours testing our decks on all the terrain Colorado has to offer.  From our Evo core in our freestyle decks, to our Patent Pending Evo-Lite core in our all mountain freestyle decks we have put our heads together to change the way snowboards are constructed, all with you the rider in mind.

Check us out here on the website, if you see our team riders around the world slap them a high five, and If you ever see Corey or Daniel around the world… don’t hesitate to say hi and strike up a conversation.  Were always looking to make new friends!
