SNOWBOARDS at OOTDOORS
Scotland’s leading online outdoors store.
The only thing we can say for certain is that modern snowboarding began in 1965 when the first commercial snowboard was introduced with the invention of the “Snurfer”. In the last 50 years snowboarding has progressed in leaps but it hasn’t lost any of the fun it was originally invented. Snowboards are boards that are usually the width of one’s foot longways, with the ability to glide on snow. Snowboards are differentiated from monoskis by the stance of the user. In monoskiing, the user stands with feet inline with direction of travel (facing tip of monoski/downhill) (parallel to long axis of board), whereas in snowboarding, users stand with feet transverse (more or less) to the longitude of the board. Users of such equipment may be referred to as snowboarders. Commercial snowboards generally require extra equipment such as bindings and special boots which help secure both feet of a snowboarder, who generally rides in an upright position. These types of boards are commonly used by people at ski hills or resorts for leisure, entertainment, and competitive purposes in the activity.
