Despite being fairly new on the slopes, Swiss brand WEST caught everyone's eye last year by producing one of the most expensive boards on the market, La Supreme, coming in at a spit-taking £1500. A handmade collab with legendary shaper Reto Neiger, you can expect it to hit a few wallets again next year, and whilst the rest of the line isn't quite the same spec they've certainly impressed at recent tests.

New for next winter is an exclusive collab with French rap legends IAM, featured below, as well as another appearance by Lucas Beaufort's critters on another collab with We Ride in Iran, a Swiss-originating project to provide a snowboarding infrastructure in the Middle East.

Once again it's a small but exciting range from a small brand, so if you're fed up with the big boys in the business it might be worth taking a look at WEST Snowboards for 2017/18.
