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.
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.

My friends and I spent the 2010 Thanksgiving break surfing the powder in the northern Utah backcountry on our handmade powdersurf boards. Shot and edited by Jeremy Jensen with help from Dave Smellie and Mike Kerkman using my Canon 7d.
We thought our powsurfing season here in Utah was over a couple of weeks ago but mother nature insisted on one more day. A fresh 18" of snow made for pow turns in the early morning and mush slashing by early afternoon. Another testament to the versatility of Grassroots Powdersurfers in ANY kind of soft snow. Not quite a "Powsurf Chronicle" but worth a watch!

We were super stoked when the writers for ESPN.com contacted us for a story. We provided them with a grip of unseen photos and some very detailed answers to a list of questions about what we are about and why we do what we do. They decided to start the new year off proper by running our story on the first day of 2012.
While the photos did not make it into the story (??) and many details were left out of the responses, we were pumped to have a story ran on such a major media outlet. Editing is necessary… especially when someone like me is rambling on and on about this obscure activity that is foreign to most people (powsurfing)… but it’s a bummer when points get missed or lines are used out of context. Journalism is a double edged sword.. Things can get pretty twisted around and the readers of these stories don’t realize this.
The response to our product, the films, and powsurfing in general has been overwhelmingly positive and it feels good to know that we are spreading stoke and opening minds in the world of snow sports. The few negative reactions we have seen are mostly due to misunderstandings. Dealing with the media is a funny thing.

The solstice usually comes on the 21st of December but this year it fell on the 22nd. I was delighted by this news because I had to work the day of the 21st and I wanted to celebrate properly. Mother nature dropped 7 inches of the lightest and driest cold smoke she had to offer and served that up sunny skies and cold temps. Perfect timing for an epic celebration.
We keep getting holiday e-cards sent to me from anyone and everyone… so we hopped on the bandwagon and made a quick little e-card from today’s session.
It has been nearly a month since a significant snowfall and this seems to be the case across much of the US. So the conditions are still low tide and the spots with good coverage and no old tracks are difficult to find but luckily we know just where to find them.
The attitude across the country seems pretty bummed on the conditions but honestly I have been enjoying the hell out of it. Logged at least 20 good powder days so far and I have only felt the need to strap in once. Until the big lines fill in.. I just don’t see any reason to snowboard.
These early season conditions are a big part of what spawned Powdersurfing in the first place. Being able to take advantage of the smaller features and maximizing the fun and the challenge keeps things interesting and fresh. This is just one of the many advantages of Powdersurfing. If you are not enjoying the season so far, you should probably consider investing in a Grassroots Powdersurfer. It will change your life.
