Watch: The First Commercial to Feature Snowboarding

By

In about 1980 and ad agency saw an article on the Snurfer brand snow surfer in Playboy. They contacted the Jem corp and asked for riders to do a commercial. Jem gave them my name, Mark Halseth, and Paul Graves. When they found out my wife, Jane , rode they hired her too. We filmed the inside shots in Baniff, Canada and the riding was in Colorado. It was warm in Baniff and the snow was bad. I was the rider in the yellow vest. i do not think there were many riders like me that did not use the rope at that time. Jane is the blonde in the red, white vest and the other rider is Paul Graves. Great memories and a ton of fun.I Look forward to hearing about what you think about some early hot shots.
