10 YEARS OLD !
Furlan Snowboards is 10 years old, I created the brand in 2008 after I've been shaping snowboards since 1998 as a craftsman. My boards were the fruit of my dream: back to powder, adapting powder boards to young generations. During this period, Furlan Snowboards was a non official and very confidential snowboard brand. Today, I create the most versatil snowboards as possible. Whatever your program, freestyle, freeride, backcountry, carving... my boards always have a little something more to fly in powder.
These boards... were the best motivation to create Furlan Snowboards.
These board was my Christmas gift when I was 11 years old, in 1984. In 1985 I manufactured exactly the same with my 13 years old neighbor, Cédric Heyman in his garage. Sadly, we lost it but since this day I've never stopped riding a snowboard ! .
When I manufactured this board in 1997, I had this idea of funny shape in mind. I wanted to make a longboard which reacts exactly like a shortboard. When I tried it the first time, it was a great, great moment ! The best board I had ridden ever !
After the great success of my prototype, I decided to start manufacturing snowboards as a craftsman. During 3 years I always manufactured my unic model: "The Blood And Fire 193". Great board.
I drawed quickly this logo on a paper and sticked it on the board before making the final resin varnish.
1998: Furlan Snowboards is an official confidential snowboard brand !
As a craftsman, I didn't want to make wood design, I wanted to make something funnier so I decided to print orange topsheets with my Furlan Logo.
Here you can see, those shapes are still our inspiration today. Our concept "Cyrano Nose" is not new.
Furlan Snowboards is a family brand, we work together, we ride together and live together. We enjoy life !
Today we offer snowboards for every programs. But we never forget our love for powder so there's always something for powder in our shapes.
Our snowboard team is a family !.
