Something incredible happens when you remove that fixed connection to the board from the equation. The perception you’ve grown accustomed to while snowboarding is altered immensely. Small hills become large, big mountains become huge. You begin to notice details in your environment that never peaked your interest before. The world’s largest playground that we call “the backcountry” suddenly becomes even bigger.
Powdersurfing offers a whole new way of viewing and interacting with the terrain in front of you. You can choose to experience the most surf-like style of riding imaginable as you ride the frozen waves; smacking lips and laying down deep bottom turns while floating atop the deepest and lightest powder. You can visualize your environment as the largest skatepark on earth; taking full advantage of the fact that there is no connection to your board and pursuing a true skate-style of riding. Snapping ollies, bomb dropping, or spinning and flipping the board under your feet. You can choose the snowboard-style approach; dropping cliffs, punching chutes, and launching airs just as you did when you were strapped in, but now with greater challenge and deeper sense of satisfaction. The avenues of self expression are limitless and there is a whole new world to explore. Whether you are riding deep in the backcountry or just outside your back door, powdersurfing offers a challenge that can make even the most simple terrain fun again.
Welcome to Powdersurfing! You have discovered the fountain of youth.
