PLP CUSTOM SNOWBOARDS IT IS A PROJECT BORN IN 2012

We left in three: me, GIONATA CRAVIOTTO e STEFANO MILELLA with the desire to accomplish snowboards for use in fresh snow only. We have experimented with new shapes and lengths, withcustom snowboards produced in small series of 2-3 pieces and unique prototypes without metal edges and without p-tex, reaching 220 cm in length and 38 cm in width of the nose, always in search ofshape perfetto. In this period he enters DARIO ZARAMELLA, design teacher in Turin and true problem solving at a technical and graphic level, who collaborated on the project PLP for a few years. During that time we met at aFREERID FESTIVAL, ETTORE PERSONNETTAZ, of him years before I had seen a splendid photo shoot where he went down inPOWDER some challenging colouir in the Aosta mountains, which involved us in an ambitious project, the“POWDZO 210” and we have won the prestigious award  Vibram Factory 2016for the best product at the edition 2016 di Milano Montagna. Another important collaboration was with MATTEO ZILLA “FLEECE” graphic and painter who has embellished 2 of our tables with his surreal style.
For about 5 years we have been making series from8 / 6 snowboards also very performing on the track as well as off-piste, always built by hand, but with p-tex foils and insole. The first was born from a collaboration with COMERA SNOWBOARDS, creating an object that brings together art and technology, the famous and envied BRACHYURA 175 cm, with the tail “CRAB-TAIL” used 5 years earlier on 2 PLP Custom Snowboards prototypes, and the top in the precious African essence of “ZIRICOTE”. Then we developed the UNICORN 182 with an innovative shape, as always, creating a new type of tail from which the snowboard takes its name. Our snowboards are unique objects made by hand with an artisanal procedure entirely “made in Italy”.
