Aleksey Ostatnigrosh / Gromel Snowboards
Hometown: Powell, OH
To the best of his knowledge, Aleksey Ostatnigrosh is the only US-based manufacturer of custom designed snowboards. He’s also the first Russian to build a snowboard, period.
Aleksey handcrafts custom-designed snowboards for novice and elite snowboarders. His designs are heavily influenced by Art Deco and early 20th Century abstract art. The boards are fabricated from ash wood, fiberglass, carbon fiber rubber and other materials.
He began studying and innovating snowboard designs as a teenager growing up in his native Russia. Over the last two decades, he has experimented with numerous designs and consulted with snowboard enthusiasts to make sure his boards meet expectations.
