After a whole life of dedication to snowboarding and its innovation, but also thanks to the intuitions and experiences gained on the ski slopes, later even working for winter sports companies, Alessandro Marchi “Sandy” created Sandy Shapes, a young Snowboard Company based in Friuli-Venice Giulia, producing wooden snowboards completely Made in Italy.
The artisan skills combined with the competitiveness of the Italian industrial system led to the creation of a company that stands out internationally.
Craftsmanship has always been a distinctive trait of the Italian culture and economy, the process for the realization of each new Sandy Shapes model is rooted in this culture. Each board is built using advanced design and machine tools, such as numerical control machines to cut and prepare materials. These tools are coupled with an artisanal method of assembly and finishing, with precise control of gluing times and temperatures, heating and cooling, this in order to take advantage of the best properties of each material and component. It is not a single material that determines the quality of a snowboard, but the perfect harmony of all those used.
This modern craftsmanship becomes the key to creating boards with unmatched performance and design, by meticulously controlling not only their quality in any phase of the production, but also ruling out their replicability. We are thus able to obtain a final result that can not be reproduced in industrial production processes or in other traditional artisanal workshops.
