Glad to hear this is happening.

As for snowboarding and wooden toys, the funnest time Ive ever had going sideways is on a handmade pow surfer.

5 ply blank someone I know presses, and I cut it out, shape it, sand it, paint it, and put a bit of traction on it (Ive found that strips of old mountain bike tire works best).

Hike up a snowy hill and surf it. Nothing else Ive done comes close to the fun.

Guys are starting to get technical on them, doing steep stuff and kick flipping them too.

Im confused, are you talking about snow skating? If so then they are doing a lot more than kickflipping them. There have been more than a decade of quality snow skating vids made with shit like flip to rail tech, tre flipping 10 stairs covered in snow and all that shiz.

Not quite, Im talking about these powder toys.

Ahh k, learn something every day. So this is the 'longboarder' version of snow skating huh.

Thats kinda what I was thinking.

Not even close. This is a throwback to the origins of snowboarding.

It is surfing. And it can be as easy or gnarly as you like. Ive snowboarded for 30 seasons and  snowskated since 2000, but pow surfing is way, way beyond either in terms of fun.

This is from a couple seasons back



Im still trying to understand.

So its like snowboarding in the way that u carve down hills and such, but your not attached to your board like snowskating which means theres the potential to do flip tricks and stuff

Powsurfing is the most amazing feeling. Anybody brave enough to start a snowboarding related zone on slap? Feels so taboo.

It’s closest to surfing. Possible to flip and shuvit on some shorter boards, charge bigger stuff on bigger boards.

Here’s me eating shit on a shuvit, and then trying to survive on boner-deep snow on crust

Snowskates are neither snowboarding nor skating, they are a weird in between. And while they are plenty fun on a slushy day it’s not as fun as just skating, or as versatile as a snowboard.

Aight I think I understand now, thanks for enlightening me about pow surfing.
