I used the search tool for the entire forum and I did not find a thread dedicated to freeboards. The threads were more or so inquiries or opinions about the sport but there is no thread for current freeboarders to have open discussions.

Might be in luck???
Found a March 2 local craigslist ad for a bamboo series freeboard for $75!!
Hopefully they still have it.

I skate in the off season and love it. It's (obviously) not a perfect replica of snowboarding, but it's close enough for me. I've been getting into long distance skating over the past few summers, and its helped with cardio a TON. For myself, I don't freeboard since I have very little terrain here that will allow for that, but with longboarding, I have a lot of versatility with various disciplines. I can go fast if I want, travel long distances, wiggle around cones, etc.

I don't skate much anymore but I ride a Ripstick with my kids during the off season. The turning mechanics for Ripstick is similar to snowboarding. Only bad thing with Ripstick is only way to stop is to bail. It can get little dangerous going fast.

One plus is, I can ride it around the house easier than a skake board.
