S&C reopened its doors this Easter after undergoing a major expansion and refit. "The new shop is a culmination of the past six years of work" says Andrew Clark who opened S&C back in 1995. "It's an opportunity for us to see the five year plan set back in 1996 becoming a reality."

The opening is timed in with S&C's new website and online shop at www.snowboarder.co.nz.

S&C is the only snowboard shop in New Zealand that focuses 100% on specialist snowboard products and services including casualwear.

This includes childrens gear, alpine, backcountry and safety equipment." "We also offer a comprehensive rental department including top model demo boards." adds Andrew.

S&C have a workshop with new tuning machinery to keep their large rental fleet in top order. Customers boards may be tuned overnight.

"With over 3/4 of our customers being visitors to Queenstown, it's a priority of ours to provide a great kiwi welcome" says Victoria Bartram, Marketing Manager. "We pride ourselves on the positive experience customers have in our shop, and with our new premises and fantastic team, the welcome just got 100% bigger."
