"As young skateboarders growing up in the 80's we always dreamed of "skateboarding in powder." True passion and drive to achieve that dream is the reason that Grassroots Powdersurfing exists today.
Snowboarding was born in an attempt to "surf the snow" and evolves daily by following the style and progression of skateboarding. For us, the limiting factor of these attempts was obvious (bindings). So we stepped back and got rid of that limiting factor. This simple step along with years of experimenting with shapes, sizes, and various builds has brought us to where we are today.
Surfing and skating the powder has become our reality."
Splitboard.com has dabbled in Noboarding, NoSplitting, and even a little Snow Skating in the past and have always been intrigued with the simplicity of them all. It's amazing how fun it can be to to put the challenge back into snowboarding and get back to the roots of our sport. The freedom to move your feet wherever you like on the board feels exactly like skateboarding and surfing but the thing that has always seemed lacking is the control of the board. The concept and approach Jeremy Jensen at Grassroot Powsurfing is taking with smaller, lighter boards puts the control back into the hands (or should I say feet) of the user. The decks are smaller than a regular snowboard and larger than a snowskate providing what looks to be the perfect mix for surfing pow and still being able to pull off skate influenced tricks like kickflips and shove-its. We're stoked to see this next step of shredding and look forward to getting our feet on one soon!
