History of Snowboarding

History of Snowboarding

The history of snowboarding arguably dates back over 400 years to Turkish villagers who used to rip it up in the Kackar mountains. Yeah, odds are they weren’t lobster flipping over their donkey carts, but they probably got a taste of what it’s like to catch a toe edge and faceplant hard (just like you and me…ok, maybe just me). Anyway, we put together an infographic that chronicles the history of snowboarding so you can appreciate how far things have progressed. From wooden boards, to swallowtails, to carbon fiber. Anyone remember riding in Sorel boots?…yep, we’ve got that covered too. Check it!
