Snurfing – The act of surfing on snow. The precursor to snowboarding.
Snurfing was extremely popular in the early days of snowboarding, until Jake Burton started dominating the competition scene in the late seventies by attaching bindings to his board. “Sinking Feeling”, a short edit from Almond MFG, makes a strong argument for ditching the bindings and giving in to the natural ride of a binding-less board. Their handmade White Wave Traction setup promises to allow you to,
“Surf the mountain on almost any snowboard or splitboard you already have. Redraw lines of seasons past. Familiar terrain has an entirely new feel.”
These bindings are handmade in Revelstoke and would be pretty rad to have in your quiver on a waist deep day.
