gotta admit i was pretty blown away to see this best -of snowskate vid. there's def some kinda hokey tricks in there, but also some hardcore stuff that clearly is way harder than what urban snowboarders are doing except strapped in. anyway, another route to the fun, i'm gonna pick one up before this winter for sure. forget what you may think and checkit:
For the last couple years I've been passing this "house" with a bunch of rails set up in the middle of winter and a sign in front of it. I finally googled what the sign said last week, and oddly enough it is a snow skate company.
Definitely is a lot more like skateboarding on snow than snowboarding is. If these were around 25 years ago I would've been way into it, but now they look like a good way to hurt myself.
