Our Story

Legend has it that deep below Mt. Shasta exists Telos, an ancient but advanced civilization said to have once been the sister city of Atlantis and the connection to all that is natural in the world.

In the shadow of Mt. Shasta, in his grandfather’s garage, Dan Agundes built his first snowboard when he was just 14 years old. That moment in ‘87 spawned decades of technological innovations found in our boards today.

Stories of this mythical city inspire our graphics. Its mythos—the spirit of nature and mountains as a spring of creativity and innovation—drives our work.

In 1987, a transformative movie moment ignited Dan Agundes' lifelong passion for snowboarding, leading him to craft his very first snowboard. Over the decades, Dan has not only designed boards for prestigious global brands but also pioneered cutting-edge technologies, culminating in the creation of Telos Snowboards.

Snowboarding isn't something you just do; it's something you have to do. It's in your veins.

We're riders with more than 30 years of design and board-building experience, and we have our own factory where we perfect our craft. Making the best snowboards isn't just something we do; it's something we have to do. It's in our DNA, it’s our passion and our ultimate purpose.

Telos Snowboards engineers innovative shapes and technologies to push the progression of design. We balance flex and torsional stiffness, weight and durability, contact and stability and edge-to-edge control.

We make boards that show you how snowboarding was always meant to feel.
