Skiboards – Break Out of the Conventional and Express Yourself

You know, lessons, poles, traveling with all that equipment. Skiboards are very much under the radar with most retail store sales people clueless when you ask about them.

Welcome to 2014 Season

Hi everyone. I took last year off from writing this blog – too busy and trying to get those skiboarding days in on the slopes. This season is really shaping up – seeing all the new products coming in whets the appetite for hitting the slopes for sure.

Feedback on snowboard bindings with skiboards

Heard from a few customers now and definitely the comfort of snowboard boots is a favorite. While some have said there is no loss in performance, others have commented that there is a slight lag yet would not go back to regular ski boots and just something to get used to. I think there is a new trend with skiboards that is starting and it is exciting to watch the evolution of it. Let us know your experiences. … Read the rest
