About Us

SSW Board House is founded by a group of instructors. Yes, a group of ski, snowboard, skateboard, and watersports instructors.

What a combination! Right? Well, this is our life. Spending Winter on the big white mountains, wake surfing, kayaking, surfing during summer, Spring, and Autumn? It’s a good time to do some skateboarding.

Basically, we are big fans of all the cool sports and activities.

That’s why we created this site, to provide you with everything relating to all the sports we love. From tips and guides, gear reviews, to high-quality instructing services. 

What You Can Get from SSWBoardHouse

Below are the contents we will be providing for our readers and students:

  • Free tips and guides
  • Unbiased and honest gear reviews
  • High quality online and offline snowsports and watersports school
  • Watersports (Kayaking, rafting, SUP) rentals and guided tours

As instructors, we know how important it is to have proper gears, knowledge, skills, and a sense of safety so you can truly enjoy a sport. That’s why we want to share some useful tips and guides about the sports we love with you.

Trying different gears (and buying them!!)? Absolutely loving it! So probably, you can imagine how much we love to talk about the gears too! 

Note: Some of our instructors are sponsored by a specific brand but don’t worry, these sponsored instructors will not touch any of the gear reviews, they can only do the tips and guide part.

Here comes the online and offline sports school, guided tours, and rentals part. Hey, that’s our business. We make our living out of it, so do bear with us. LOL. We are pretty confident that our services are great and you will have an amazing time!
