They might be fairly new on the scene, but Swiss brand WEST caught everyone’s eye in 2016 by producing one of the most expensive boards on the market. La Supreme was a handmade collab with legendary shaper Reto Neiger, coming in at an eye-opening £1500. Whilst the rest of the line isn’t quite the same spec, they’ve certainly impressed at recent tests and the WEST team – including Billy Cockrell and Elena Koenz – certainly seem hyped.
In 2017/18 West also did an exclusive collab with French rap legends IAM, as well as another appearance by Lucas Beaufort’s critters on another collab with We Ride in Iran, a Swiss project to provide a snowboarding infrastructure in the Middle East. In more recent years, the brand has also tapped into the splitboard market by introducing the big Mountain Split, the Muveran, and the Powder Split, The Grammont.
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.
