Default Found: A little "Vintage" snowboard footage!

I followed a link from Amplid in Neni's board thread to the "Longboard Classic in Stuben page, and found this Tribute vid to Tom Sims! I really liked seeing this vintage footage! Amazing to see the boards these guys were riding way back when!

I thought I'd embed the vid here for all to see & for those who never "click thru" the links!

TOM SIMS TRIBUTE LBC 2013 on Vimeo

...Wellllll, I was gonna embed it, but apparently embedding from Vimeo works differently than it does with YT??? I couldn't get the vid to show up in the post! (...if anyone can fix this, and then explain the fix! )

Anyway, I thought it might be interesting if those members of SBF who have actually ridden these "Classic, old boards" could post a short comment on "The Good Ol' Days of snowboarding, maybe even post a link or two to some other vintage SB footage?!

I love watching and learning about the "Early Days" of snowboarding!

Was that what was once the start of the 1/2 pipe?? Some of the vids showed some real rugged piles of snow with a channel down the middle. I was skiing in the early mid 80's and still remember taking a trip with a bunch of buddies and only one of our friends snowboarded back then. Kinda cool seeing the vintage stuff, even though I was never a part of that scene.

Amazing how the gear and slope features have evolved

I think some of that footage might have been so "Early On" that they were not even allowed on the resorts! I seem to recall seeing some other clips from around that time that mentioned they pretty much had to stop on the side of the roads and "shred" the embankments n shit!!

I have to say that I'm glad the skier skin suits never really caught on for boarders, or at least they faded out quick! "I" would NOT be a pretty sight wearin' one of those!!!

Nice footage. These guys went through a lot of trouble to get the sport and boards where they are today.

Mad Respect.
