Welcome to Balmoral Boards

Meet the team

Meet the Balmoral Family!

A question we often get asked in the store is Do you snowboard? This constantly surprises us, it's the reason we are here, it's what we do. Yes we snowboard - like you we dream about bluebird powder days, slushy park days with mates and the next shred destination.

We don't employ staff unless they snowboard and froth on snowboarding. When you visit the store these are the people you will see. With plenty of days on snow all around the world we're here to help you get the most out of your next snowboarding holiday or get you on some exciting new shred gear.

Here's some of the resorts we've ridden over the years: Perisher, Thredbo, Hotham, Falls Creek, Mammoth, Whistler, Kirkwood, Northstar, Silverstar, Big White, Fernie, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke, Panorama, Heavenly, Park City, Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone, A Basin, Breckenridge, Happo-One, Hakuba-Goryu 47, Yanaba, Sun Alpina, Tsugaike, Iwatake, Cortina, Myoko Akakura, Ikenotaira, Suginohara, Madarao, Kagura, Naeba, Gala Yuzawa, Kandatsu Kogen, tanigawadake tenjindaira, ishiuchi maruyama, vivaldi park (South Korea), Nozawa Onsen, Niseko, Moiwa, Rusutsu, Tommamu, Furano, Kirroro, Kamui, Asahidake and the list goes on.
