What is mountainboarding?
Mountainboarding is essentially snowboarding but done on grass, dirt, or pavement. With a mountainboard your terrain is limitless and you can ride all year long! Although it draws a lot of similarity from snowboarding, surfing and skateboarding, mountainboarding has developed into a sport in its own right with its own culture and history and includes racing, freestyle, freeride and kiting disciplines. Mountainboarding is done in over 30 countries and continues to be one of the most exciting and fastest growing board sports.
Where can I ride a mountainboard?
You can ride a mountainboard almost anywhere. In fact you really need only a 5 degree slope to have enough speed in which to carve. Grass hills are an ideal place to learn. Additionally you can ride on bmx tracks, dirt roads, pavement, and some ski resorts in the summer time. Ask the resort nearest you if they have allow mountainboarding.
Who rides a mountainboard?
Snowboarders, skateboarders, surfers, mountainbikers, bmxers, wakeboarders, skiers all ride mountainboards. Basically anyone can do it. Whether you are a seasoned veteran of the slopes or a first timer you’ll find that mountainboarding is very easy to learn and in fact you do not need any special boarding skills to make your first turns. Before long you’ll be a true mountainboarder.
