Illicit Snowboarding has some genius ideas of how to keep the snowboarding stoke alive through the summer. If you don’t mind thrashing your gear, just find a new surface to ride it on:
NOSNOWBOARDING. The Top 10 Alternative Snowboarding Surfaces for the Off-Season – A Video Guide
This week we take a scientific look at the alternative off-season snowboarding surfaces to help you select the one that’s right for you. We’ve used a rigorous scoring system to determine which alternative surface is the most viable by tracking the two most important factors; usability and danger. Here’s how the scoring works…
Surface Usability Factor
1 = It’s like riding a carpet through a Velcro factory
10 = It’s just like snowboarding
Surface Danger Factor
1 = As dangerous as snowboarding on a fluffy combination of cushions, feathers and kittens
10 = You will die
The videos he’s compiled are hilarious, including the equally dangerous and desperate Pine Needle Boarding and Rock Skiing:
that one guy looked like pauly shore
the skier looks the same snow or no snow,
and I liked that song,
reminds me of rem team sub song
I totally want to go leaf boarding, looks far superior to pine needles. Video’s DOPE, shot at 0:51 is amazing!
Making of the leaf boarding video. Pretty interesting.
LOL these videos are epic!
ive always wanted to try sandboarding… but virginia is nowhere near any deserts…so freebording it is.
haha the skier is epic… if you “ride the turns” like a drunken kangaroo on crutches, rocks might feel exactly like powder does 😀
thought about building a small summer-jib in my backyard… might happen this summer
the pine needle boarding video makes me regret leaving my snowboard at my apartment over summer break…
So, you don’t think this escalator snowboarding thing will take off then?
