Below you will find our winter 2017/2018 Limited Edition Snowboard Splitboard and Ski models. Each is crafted in the same spirit as our custom work: performance as a focal point, elevated by beauty. This collection is comprised of our favourite tried-and-tested shapes and profiles and are built with riders’ joy in mind.


The wood marquetry artwork on each is inspired by landscapes often found in the woodgrain itself. From coulouirs to cosy cabins, this season we chose to depict tempting alpine terrain that we’d like to explore ourselves.

The Tsolum

The Tsolum all-mountain twin is a hybrid of beauty, style and performance. Consider the Tsolum if you enjoy the balance of riding centered on your board no matter the terrain. Early rise camber paired with medium flex combine to support smooth edge transitions while maintaining a playful feel. Mellow sidecut serration nodes give solid grip in hardpack and ice whether you find yourself regular or switch, toeside or heelside.

The Black Creek

The Black Creek is aggressively directional and built to thrive in all conditions. It's perfect for charging through heavy chop; weaving a line through tight trees; laying into nose-to-the-snow carves; open throttle speed; and surfing deep powder. Its broad powder-friendly nose is supported by mellow sidecut serration for added grip in hardpack and ice. It features an early rise camber profile with a slightly stiffer tail to create a responsive blend of directional stability and maneuverability. It's a one-stop-shop.

Explore terrain options beyond the lift-line on the Cumberland Gap. It’s a directional splitboard with stability and maneuverability at the core. Early rise profile with camber underfoot takes pressure off your turns after a long hike.

Experience

"This season I toured throughout the Rockies and Monashees on The Kindred Cumberland Gap with a carbon fibre upgrade. I love that weight is cut on the up track without sacrificing stiffness. It is extremely responsive and inspires confidence with every turn - the ultimate splitboard for charging big lines at high speeds.
It makes me want to go bigger every time I come to a halt in the flats and look back at my prize! If you're looking to push your free riding to the next level this is the splitboard for you."

"Pillows Stacks. Single Slashes. Mogul Methods. Mandatory Straight Lines. Hot Pow. Yesterday's Champagne. TOMORROW MORNING. Switch stalefish. Buttered Knuckles. Sled Laps. Safety Meetings. Cab 2's. Corduroy. Switch Toe Carve Swaps. Holy Crails. Hard-ways. Rope Ollies. XL Jumps. Down-Flat-Down-Flat-Downs. Hard Charging. Easy Riding... The Tsolum is a samurai sword, cutlass and jungle machete all in one; beautiful enough for my mantle, technical in close combat and built for slashing your way to powder paradise. The only thing I don't like about my Kindred is taking my headphones out on the chairlift to talk about it"

"My board arrived in the mail today. All I can say is WOW! I am absolutely thrilled with the craftsmanship. It really is a unique and personalized piece of art"

"My Kindred powder skis are amazing. They keep me afloat despite my weighing over 275lbs. I visited the workshop, watching the process in stages, and know first hand the work that goes into them. Kindred is a go-to source for anyone who appreciates fine hand-crafted equipment that performs - although my wife thinks they are too pretty to ski on and should be hung as artwork!"

-Steve Touhey

"The board is gorgeous. Absolutely stunning. You guys did a phenomenal job on this one. I just want to say that working with you these past 4 months has been a really great experience. I had a lot of fun the whole way through. I'll be sure to recommend you guys to anyone who asks. Thanks again for bearing with me through this complex project, and I look forward to working with you again in the future."

"My Kindred Black Creek is one of the best boards I have ridden in my 20+ years of snowboarding. The product description is totally accurate - it's a quiver-filler and one-stop-shop suitable for directional riding in most any conditions. I'm an aggressive rider who demands a lot of my board and it always does what I ask it to. It's my go-to stick."

-Rob Pickering
Oyster River, BC

"In my nearly 25 years of snowboarding I have been fortunate to ride many boards - including test riding a half dozen Kindreds - and Kindred offer aspects you simply cannot find with other snowboards. They balance meticulous hand-built principles supported by computer/tech accuracy; they offer a personalized customer experience that bigger manufacturers cannot duplicate; and most of all they boast a priceless love of building snowboards. The cherry on top is that the boards are bullet-proof and they look ridiculously good slashing powder!!"
