How Furberg Snowboards was born
During the 00’s we jealously watched our friend’s freeride skis be revolutionized, while the snowboard industry remained stagnant. Long sidecut radius and camber under foot were combined with rocker and reverse sidecut towards the tip and tail of the skis. The result was skis that had better stability, floatation and were more effortless to ride. In summary, freeride skiing was made simpler.
It seemed obvious that these modifications would work for snowboards as well.
So in 2009 we decided to found Furberg Snowboards. The shape that revolutionized freeride skis turned out to work just as well on snowboards. Furberg Snowboards is currently considered to be the most innovative snowboard brand on the market and is constantly refining their boards for higher performance and better quality.
The advantage of our unique location
The company base in Sogndal, Norway, provides proximity to lift accessed riding and splitboarding all 12 months a year. This makes it possible for us to work actively on product development year-round, whereas most brands only have access to development opportunities during winter and occasional trips to the southern hemisphere. Furberg Snowboards was founded because of the lack of innovation in the snowboard industry, and Sogndal is the ideal place for us to further the development of freeride snowboards.

We aim to to develop the world’s best freeride snowboards and splitboards
Furberg Snowboards was founded with the pursuit to make the world’s best freeride snowboards.
In order to do so we’ve been working closely with our team riders and ambassadors, but maybe most importantly our customers. Everyone who has ever bought a snowboard from us has been contacted to collect valuable feedback. We believe that in order to make the best possible products, it’s of great importance to get feedback from people with different riding style and level, and not only from professionals.
Thanks for all feedback we’ve got so far, and please keep contributing in our aim to develop the world’s best freeride snowboards.
