It’s not uncommon for brands to emerge from the ashes of creative disputes, and Moonchild is no exception. Founded in 2015 by Jure Sodja, an avid snowboarder who had cut his teeth designing and building boards for Elan but had become disillusioned with the creative confines he faced. He was joined by CAPiTA R&D guru Marcus Montgomery and together the two embarked on a journey to build high-end snowboards that were truly innovative and different.
Despite being a relatively new company, Moonchild has a strong product line, with a mixture of unique offerings and more traditional shapes. They go full hog on the experimental front with their SkUnkWorX projects. Ever thought you’d see a snowboard shaped like a spatula or a pow surfer with a denim topsheet? Well, they exist and it was Moonchild who made them.
As well as having a full production line, Moonchild has the means to produce custom orders. You can create your dream snowboard, customising every feature to dial in your perfect ride.
Jure and Marcus are about as avid as they come when it comes to snowboarding, with voracious appetites for shredding and designing in equal measure. Quality is key with Moonchild, and the two owners make sure to have a hand in every part of their business, from product testing to shipping orders.
Two years on the Bounce the Moonchild Malibu has caught our attention, and this season it won a coveted spot in the Whitelines 100. Compared to some of the wacky shapes on offer, the Malibu looks pretty ordinary, but we assure you it’s anything but.
Keep your eyes on the Moonchild crew, we can see these guys becoming the next big thing amongst true shred aficionados.
