    Skiboarding is also a high performance, all mountain sport. That is what I love about skiboarding. It encompasses all. What to learn quick and go huge in the park? Skiboarding is for you. Want to be the slickest on-piste rider at your local resort? Yep, got ya' covered. You'll be there in a hurry. Want to hike for 5 hours to the top of nowhere to carve those "first ever" tracks? You are in the right game. Want to enjoy the mountain while laughing it up with you kids on the greens and blues? Want to do things your way - feel the mountain the way you want to feel the mountain? Welcome to the party. We as skiboarders have the most fun. Also, and this is important - despite having high end, technically advanced equipment, our stuff is reasonably priced. Almost anyone can afford to own 2-3 sets of different boards and a top end set of bindings to swap out between them. Not to mention that our equipment fits in the trunk or back seat of your car. No requirement for a roof rack. Buy another set of bindings instead. We represent diversity at its' very best.

    Nicely put.
    I concur.
    Skiboarding becomes a passion to those who try it, love it, and live it.

    no other snow sport ever felt right. From the first time I got on skiboards I knew it was the sport for me. I have had a long love affair with the sport. Its heading into its 12th year. I hope like last season that it will love me back , just one more time.
    live it, love it,rip it!!

    What I love about skiboarding the most is the freedom. I'm free from having my feet shackled together on one piece of equipment so that falls always hurt. I'm free from needing poles that are a distraction from just having fun. I'm free from the fear that my sticks are so long that they'll overpower me on a slope. I'm free to tackle any kind of slope because I know that I'm the one controlling my situation, not my boards. Most of all, I'm free to go out and just have fun without worrying about whether or not I fit in with some group, or if I look cool to others. I am a skiboarder. I am free.

    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming... "WOW! WHAT A RIDE!!"

    ditto ditto ditto, very nice quote " I am a Skiboarder. I am Free." I think we all can relate to that, nicely put.

    I loved how on my first day skiboarding, I was with my snowboarding friends, and i took awhile to put on my skiboards for the first time. They were laughing at me like "Hhahaha takes you forever were gonna go to the top of the hill and we'll meet you up there" and then i get to the top of the lift and there they are sitting in the snow, strapping on their boards. Every time, all day long, I had to wait for them to strap on their boards, and i was like "hahaha whos slow now??" They thought i would fall and make a fool of myself, but on the second or third run i just spun around backwards and was going down waiting for them to come down the hill. "Whats takin you guys so long? The hills not gonna bite!"

    The point is - I've only been out for one day and im already madly in love. I am so happy I found this forum and read all these posts that convinced me to just go out and try it, and be me. Convinced me to break free!

    Thx guys.

    In 2009 the idea of having short skis was rounding my head, but I didn't know about skiboards. I went with a friend to a ski shop to buy some ski poles for him (he wanted them to do hiking/trekking), and I asked for this "short skis". Then they showed me some 90cm salomon snowblades. At that time I didn't know that they're not the best option, but I loved the idea of short skis, so I bought them, mainly because they were very reasonably priced (at that time, around sixty dollars). A few months later I tested them in Valle Nevado, a Chilean Ski Resort. Gee that was awesome! I used to ski with some rossignols 177cm skis, and the change was astonishing! now I had absolute control, could do much better turns, in summary, I loved them.

    A couple of weekends ago, I went again to the mountains, and in a ski rental I bought some second-hand Crazy Creek skiboards, and I borrowed my snowblades to my girlfriend. She had skied before, a couple of times with some 154cm dynastar skis. Both of us had a great time, she was very happy with them, so i decided to give her my old snowblades and keep my crazy creek skiboards (I know they're not the best skiboards around, but will do for a beginner) and I'll sell the good ol' rossignols.

    Other thing that i love from skiboards is that they're very lightweight and, as they're short, I can store them in the trunk of my hatchback, just pack them and go!
