Snolo High Performance Alpine Sleds has one director - Sean Boyd from Central Otago, New Zealand. Snolo Sleds the company was first registered by Sean in 2010. The first sled released by Snolo is the Stealth-X and this was launched in December 2012.
I am the inventor of the Snolo Sleds range of snow vehicles. They say that necessity is the mother of all invention; this was certainly true for me. After coming to terms with the fact that I could not ski or snowboard to a level that would excite me without exposing myself to serious risk of injury, I came up with the idea for the Stealth-X sled. So after spreading myself over many positions in several industries during my working life, I decided to put my skills learnt from the automotive, plastics and metal industries together with my passion for design, invention and business.
I spent five years designing, testing and refining prototype sleds in my spare time. I quit my day job to pursue my dream of spreading the thrills and excitement of adult sledding and extreme sledding to others around the world, who like me want some seriously cool fun on the snow.
Over this process I came to realize that every single job I had in my life contributed one or more skills to this rewarding project. Nothing was a waste of time - more like a very long apprenticeship in business, innovative thinking and design. Now Snolo Sleds is my full time job and my spare time is spent making ray guns from junk. These can be viewed HERE. What ever your passion is, grasp it, spend time doing it and ultimately make it your job... you will never be happier.
