Academy Snowboards – Good People, Great Snowboards. We didn’t write that, it’s their company slogan. But who are we to argue? Since 2002, Academy have focussed on quality over quantity, with bespoke lineup of five rider designed and driven products: the Propaganda, Propacamba, Team, Graduate and Master Series.
Hailing from Tahoe since 2002, with Chad Otterstrom at the helm and the Never Summer factory backing up the construction credentials, Academy Snowboards cater to every type of rider and budget.

While the Propaganda boldly claims to be the “best park board ever made” the Propacamba offers a durable, cambered, jib specific option.
For those looking for something with more all-mountain credentials, the Team and Graduate offer total terrain versatility for stronger, more demanding riders. Lastly, the most recent addition to the Academy lineup is the Master. Designed by none other than Chris Roach, features a directional shape with premium construction for gun’s blazings, balls to the wall charging.
