It was back in 1997 when I first tried K2 SNOWBOARDS as an athlete (thanks to Alessandro and what was Greenpoint at that time): the brand was almost unheard of here in the Aosta Valley and was still in its early days in the rest of Italy..
TNow, twenty years on, as an ambassador for the brand I still appreciate the development and innovation of this brand and can confirm that K2 is one of the best snowboard brands out there.
