Freebording

YouTube - Freebord Ride Explained 2

They do a way better job of explaining than I would, so check that vid out. I didn't believe most of that stuff till i actually tried it, so find someone that stocks it near you and ask if they can take you up for a few runs or ask around on the forum (link at the bottom)

If anyone else has any questions feel free to ask or if you've tried it post some feedback. If anyone else feels the need to snowboard in summer I recommend checking it out. Happy Shredding

Yeah, it's worth checking out. Ask round and most people wont mind teaching you, as long as you don't flat-spot their wheels. I have seen people using them as longboards (and longboards with bindings), but it would be a bit of a conversion and probably not as flexy.

The main attraction is being able to snowboard in summer, which it's good at doing. Plus theres lots of freestyle options for it, if you want to get into that kinda stuff. If you get one, the upgrade wheels are probably worth getting for when you wear down your stocks (not that it'll happen super fast, but it will happen probably)

I bought one of these before I knew how to snowboard and it's amazing. I was riding about a month before my first time snowboarding and by the end of the day, I was able to dominate the bunny and green circles, blue squares (of course falling a couple times), and some park riding. The only thing I hate about freebording now is that it sucks to fall cause its not powder.
