The Powsurf Chronicles Episode 3 – Living the Dream

The Powsurf Chronicles Ep 3 – Living The Dream

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.

The Powsurf Chronicles Episode 2 – Goods in the Woods

The 2011 La Nina winter was a memorable one, powder days were plentiful but we didn’t see the sun shine for months. We all know the trees are where you want to be in times like this so we took shelter in the woods, where the visibility was good and the powder was epic.

120cm Grassroots “Powder Skate” in the DEEP Pow

A quick run on the 120 cm “Powder Skate” model. I keep getting requests from people for longer boards… trust me, you don’t need the giant board that you think you might want! Our boards are designed to be much shorter than snowboards for a number of reasons and as you can see even the shortest board we make dominates the deep & light pow.

Pre-Rapture powsurfing at my favorite “skiers only” resort.
Alta, Utah May 20th 2011

Since some religious wacko has forecasted the world’s end on the 21st of May, I figured I’d better go snag some “forbidden fruit” on the slopes of Alta. Waist deep pow in late May!?… Perhaps the world has already ended and I am in heaven.
