DOUK Snowboards are a small, one-man operation hand crafting snowboards from a small base in Worcestershire; the UK's only snowboard manufacturer.

David Ombler is the chairman of the board here, who's even gone so far as to create his own press as well as a whole variety of other tools as part of his journey teaching himself to make rideable snowboards from scratch.

It's pretty impressive stuff given he's built everything from the ground up; we've heard a lot about David and his brand and can't wait to try out some of his whips at this year's board test in Kaunertal!
