Suffolk Snowboard Shop turns 18!

In the beginning… 

18 years ago today we first opened our doors to the lovely people in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.  We opened initially as a surf shop and did really well with brands like Rip Curl and Reef. 18 years later they are still going strong for us! We diversified online early on  when we found our customers loved being able to shop online for sale skiwear! This was also great in lockdown!

As we move forward we have some brilliant brands coming with us! Burton Snowboards will always be a firm favourite, alongside Volcom. We have new additions from Helly Hanson, 686 and Lib Tech Snowboards. So many new innovations and developments mean the industry never sits still and neither does Odyssey.

As always we welcome our customers to visit. We offer a full snowboard boot fit free of charge, and heat moulding. If you want expert advice on which snowboard is right for you come and visit Chris for a chat. He can also be contacted by phone if you live far away. Here at Odyssey we like nothing more than to advise and help customers. We are a family run business here to look after your family.

Summer is coming!

Now that summer is here we specialise in beachwear. Customers love our Oakley Sunglasses Sale!  In menswear our Volcom Walkshorts are very popular, and for women Rip Curl swimwear! Look great at the beach – add some Reef Fannings for the perfect finish! We still keep an upstairs sale ski and snowboard room during the summer so that customers can come and pick up a bargain ready for the winter ahead. Please ask in store for details!

If you are lucky enough to live close enough come by and see our fantastic collection of snow gear in the winter or beachwear in the summer! An independent family run business based in the heart of Suffolk!

PS We also have an ebay store!

Sale Snowboards

Here in Odyssey we have an epic selection of sale snowboards at the moment! Stop by and see Chris for personal advice. We can recommend a board based on your style of riding and what you want to achieve! We have a great stock in particular on ladies snowboards.

The best snowboard boot bargains to be found are shop favourites the Burton Moto, Burton Ruler and the Salomon Dialogue (and Dialogue wide). These are still available in lots of sizes. You are always welcome to pop in and have a try. If you want advice on fit for an online order we are happy to help and advise by phone.  Remember if you purchase snowboard boots from us we heat mould for free!

We also have a great range in our snow outerwear sale, including great prices on Helly Hanson, Burton and Volcom outerwear! It is worth mentioning we still have stock of classics like the Burton Cargo and the Volcom Roan Bib!

So even though summer is fast approaching don’t forget Odyssey when planning for your next winter trip!

New Burton Step Ons have arrived

As you may know if you’ve spent any time talking with Chris, we are massive fans of the Burton Step On bindings here at Odyssey and are stoked that the winter 2023/24 collection of boots and bindings have arrived.

As the last few seasons, stock is likely to be very limited so we’d advise getting in to see us as soon as possible if you are interested. We have a couple of boards set up with the Step Ons in store so you can get your feet in a pair of boots and get a feel for how good the system works.

We also have the Step Ons available online and are selling them as Packages and also selling the boots and bindings separately.

This season for men we have chosen to stock the Burton Photon and Burton Swath boots, in our opinion the 2 boots most suited to the majority oif riders. Both of these boots available in a couple of colour options.

Check out the Burton Photon Package here in Black/Blue and in Grey

We also have the Swath Step On package here in Black and in Slate Blue.

If you need any advice contact us via the Messenger app on the site, give us a call on 01284 753322 or best of all, swing by the shop in Bury St Edmunds and we’ll be happy to help!

New Winter Boots!

We always pride ourselves on having the best selection of apres ski and winter boots in Bury St Edmunds. These boots are not just for those hitting the slopes this winter, but for anyone wanting warm dry feet and good grip all season long.  The brands we love are Italian brand Olang and Canadian born Sorel – the quality of both brands is evident in their style and their tech, and here at Odyssey we are big big fans. This week we have had yet more deliveries to add lots of new season winter boots to our collection. Don’t forget to check out our selection of sale Olang and sale Sorel boots though because we have some bargain apres ski boots from last season available!

Our favourite boots this year from Sorel are the ladies Kinetic Conquest and the men’s Mac Hill Mid, whilst a style that we love season on season is the Joan of Arctic – this year we have it in grey and black. These boots and all the ones we sell are waterproof with insulated soles making them warm and toasty wherever you take them.


Olang were the first snow boot we ever stocked in Odyssey and as a brand they have gone from strength to strength. We love their attention to detail in their design, they are a brand that represent quality and we love wearing them! I am already picking a favourite – the Olang Quebec in Paprika is such a beautiful boot and it goes with all your autumnal wardrobe whilst the Olang Opera Ice Tex is just Ski Holiday Style down to a T for a great price if £129.99


Taking the right kit is of paramount importance when you head to the slopes – don’t let your footwear let you down!

Feel free to pop in and try on, or if you want sizing and fit advice before ordering just get in touch with us, we are happy to offer advice at any time to ensure you make the right decision.

Well known for its great technical outerwear for skiing and snowboarding it has long been an ambition to get it in store! This winter season our first arrivals are the mens Bossanova Jacket in navy which teamed with the Odin insulator could be one of the warmest outerwear combinations on offer in store.

There is a lot more Helly Hansen Outerwear to come so do keep an eye out online or pop by the shop and have a browse!
