Default Mountain boarding?

Has anyone done mountain boarding before? I've only heard of this sport recently and it looks like- being obsessed with snowboarding- I might have something to keep me sane during my free time this summer while I wait for more snow.

Based on what I know about it already, it is supposed to be very similar; the only significant difference being wheels. A mountain board is longer than a skateboard, has bindings with ratchets, and is apparently controlled by leaning toeside and heelside, or so I've heard.

They're designed to be used downhill on dirt, but can also be used on anything else really.

This is a Trampa mountain board:



I'm just not sure if it would be worth buying one, being a college student with limited extra money...
