Backwoods - Maine's Best Snowboard & Skate Shop

The Shop

Snowboard Services

We are a full-service snowboard shop that offers anything from a Boot Lace repair to a full Snowboard Super Tune.  Listed below are some of the specialty services that we are privileged enough to offer our customers.

Picking the correct weapon – we are a full-service snowboard shop which means we are required to ride all of the gear we sell.  As tough as this sounds we absolutely love what we do.  By spending time riding all of the product we sell it ensures we will help you make the best decision when it comes to picking out your gear.

Super Tune - Our workshop is equipped with a Base Grinder, GrindRite Machine Edger, files, Irons, some of the fastest wax on the planet, and last but not least very knowledgeable and passionate people working on your snowboard.

Waxing – we offer anything from a simple and quick rub on wax to a full hotwax with a base clean, wax, scrape, and base buff.

Snowboard Repair and Epoxy – If you have a snowboard that is delaminating or has edge damage we can fix it. With a two-part, flexible, and cold temperature rated epoxy we can fix problems of all sorts. There are situations where the board is at a point that it is unfixable.

Binding Mounting – when it comes to binding mounting we get very excited. This can make or break someone’s experience on a snowboard. We take pride in getting to know each rider in order to dial in the set up the best way possible. From the size of the rider to the style of riding we take it all into consideration. We can almost always do this on the spot so there is no reason to leave the gear behind.

Boot Fitting – when it comes to spending the day on the hill Boots are the piece of equipment that we are in for the longest period of time. Whether sizing and fitting new boots or customizing your current boots we love to help. With a boot heater in the shop we offer Heat Molding which makes liners specifically formed for each rider. This can help break in new boots or help get rid of that pressure point in an existing pair of boots.

Binding Adjustment and Repair – Whether you got new boots and need a quick binding adjustment or have a broken strap or buckle we have you covered.

Boot and Lace Repair – No matter what the lacing system is on your boot we will do everything in our power to repair it. From traditional lace boots, speed zone, and BOA dial boots we have been working on snowboard boots for over 20 years.

Helmet and Goggle Fitting – We carry multiple brands of Helmets and Goggles and can help make sure you end up with the best fit possible.

Snowboard Instructor: Gear Inspection Center – Many mountains require snowboard instructors to have the gear inspected by a certified snowboard shop. We would love to help with this as well. We will review your boots, bindings, and snowboard to ensure that you are all dialed to be not only the safest instructor possible but also the having the most fun and spreading the love of snowboarding. Free of Charge – spread the love!

Trail Reports – Not only are we in constant communication with all of the resorts we also spend as much time as possible on our snowboards. We love to chat with everyone that comes in the shop about current conditions and where the best snow is. Whether it’s one of us, one of our team riders, or one of our homies we do our best to have someone on snow almost every day.
