Testing Snowboards V’Italy Style and adding photos

Testing 2018 Snowboards in Italy and adding Photos in our website

It has been a while since we updated our BLOG with some news. But we always think it has to add something.

So here we go. Last weeks were all about sales. Selling our products to our retail partners, by meeting up in our showroom or going by there shop to show the program. By now we are closing the sale season and we would like to thank all of our retail partners for their trust and cooperation with us!


Next to important things like ‘sales’,  we are trying to build our social media network, like Instagram, Facebook, Youtube to a higher level. A task not easy as not every of our retail partner is active on social media.  We make it easy for you what we are doing, with events, rides, likes and much more, we have entered a new section in our website, called PHOTOS. Here we present our social media pictures, by using the #birnstar.  So if you have anything interesting for us and is related with us, you can always use this hashtag. If you just would like to follow us, then go to our Birnstar Instagram and click follow.

Testing Snowboards V’Italy Style

Like every year we also organise the Snowboard test for 333media (Maruba). This year we are invited in the beautiful Italian Alps (South Tirol) Sulden Am Ortler for testing snowboards. A nice small village on an elevation of 2000mtrs. A perfect hide out to test the 2018 snowboards. Interesting fact; a lot of brands are entering the test with snowboards designed for piste carving. You would think that we going back to the 90’s, but as you know, all good thing come back.  In this case  brands are following a trend that was entered by Korua Snowboards, with their ‘Yurning and Turning’, and is now followed by a big part of the mainstream snowboard brands. The good thing is it’s bringing back the fun in snowboarding. New carve tricks are invented and even more important, customers are relating to this style. Much easier then sending a quadruple trick in a superpark.

Check out the video’s that is presented on our YouTube Channel, where you can get a quick overview of this 2018 Snowboardtest in Sulden am Ortler.

Using ‘the Douchebag’ as alternative transport

A Douchebag is coming through.

Last weeks are very busy, as we are in full swing with our winter 17/18 sales campaign. We have a lot of appointments in our showroom to show the new collections of the brands to our collaborating retail partners and it’s paying off. We see a lot of interest, which of course makes us very happy. On some days we also do have some bumps in the road and we need to deliver some extra service. In the this Wepisode ‘A Douchebag is coming through’ you will see one those days with a speed bump. During this day we have several appointments in our showroom and we have to transport ski’s to our showroom. We will show you an option ‘with a smile’ to transport the ski’s, if your van is full ;-). Before we hook’em up, we will explain the easy of use of the DB ‘the Douchebag’.


Service extraordinair.

Sometimes it seems that nothing works as it should. Like the express delivery for Zwerver. They ordered some Dynafit TLT Superlight bindings for a customer that needed them as soon as possible. Unfortunately the package was not cleared customs and was not on time. We checked our options and it seems that another retailer of Dynafit , OutdoorXL,  had them on stock. So we decide to help out and drove from Antwerp to Barendrecht and back to Herentals to help out. A three hour trip, to make a retailer happy.
