Signal Snowboards



It was the end of 2003. We sat down with a bottle of wine and made notes on a piece of paper about industry traits that we did not want to see repeated. Soon we had formed an outline and structure that would come to shape our company.

Our name would need to capture, encompass and symbolize what this new brand would stand for. We wanted to build on and sell a philosophy, not an image. We wanted to signal out to like-minded individuals and connect with them.

So Signal was founded in 2004 as an artistic company anchored in snowboarding.

We found that there was energy and strength in turning the usual way of doing business upside down. It would also be important that our own days at Signal were fulfilling. We wanted new ways to connect. Through programs like Every Third Thursday and Signal Coffee, we have proven that we can reach a huge audience by connecting with customers one-on-one and that there are others out there like us who have that same yearning...

The brand’s mission is about a company that believes in making more than just a product. We are about building a community with a much bigger cause— one that includes building our boards and a foundation here at home in California. Signal is a human sized company in an industry of giants and our priorities keep us dedicated to building our community as well as building quality snowboards and other products that enrich our lives."

Skevik Skis

  "Skevik, as an idea, was born in 2005 during a phase of transition for the Anderson Brothers. Glenn was on his way to the University of Victoria while Gregg had recently finished his degree and was organizing himself for a trip overseas. While holed up in their hometown of Vernon, British Columbia for the summer the two concocted, schemed, researched and generally tinkered away. As they moved along with their plans later that year, time became the limiting factor as it was in short supply for ski building activities. However, a name had been chosen, honouring their great grandfather, Anton Martin Skevik – born in Steinkjer, Norway, 1883. Halfway through Glenn’s engineering degree Skevik caught a break. In need of a co-op position he pitched the idea of developing skis to the faculty and thankfully, they accepted. With the time, support and equipment available, what started out as a hobby suddenly had the potential to become so much more. Now, with six years of engineering, soul and creativity poured into the Skevik brand, it is alive and thriving in the exact place it should be: Vernon, British Columbia." - Website September 2012

French Article...

  " Always wanted your own pro model ski, but can’t ski like a pro? Why don’t you just build it yourself? It sounds crazy, but building a pair of skis (or a snowboard) is not as hard as it sounds, especially if you're the average garage tinkerer. First you need to build the ski-making equipment, then you prepare the materials, and finally you put it all together to form a ski. When the smoke clears, all your hard work pays off, and there is no better feeling than skiing on a pair of skis that you designed and built yourself. This website contains information about how to build your own ride, and a forum is available for sharing information with other builders around the world. There are three of us involved in maintaining this website and we have documented our projects as well as skiing adventures. The three of us share one common passion: telemark skiing. But keep in mind that the information we present is not limited to telemark. In fact, you can also build alpine skis or snowboards using the same process. Please feel free to contribute to this unique community to help advance the art, science, and knowledge of ski building. Have fun! - Kam, Kam and Kelvin"

Several models are available and customers can also request variations to these designs. See the K Skis line for more details. We are also committed to supporting the ski design community, and in this spirit we offer basic ski building materials and supplies to meet the needs of the DIY-minded skier and tinkerer.

Each ski is made with the highest quality materials, thorough attention to detail, meticulous craftsmanship, and industry-standard manufacturing techniques. Our process consists of: Precision robotic ski shape cutting; Vibration dampening technology; Hand-selected wood species for cores, specific to each customer; Industry-standard materials: hardened steel edges, triaxial fiberglass, carbon fiber, etc.; Vibrant dye-sublimated topsheet graphics, or whatever suits your fancy.
