Mountainboarding is a cross over between skateboarding and snowboarding, with elements of other extreme sports such as BMXing. Originally started as a way of snowboarding all year round it has developed into a fully fledged sport of its own. Snowboarding can be expensive due to the price of travel to and from snow resorts. Mountainboarding can be done almost anywhere.
Learning to mountainboard is very easy. Most people are up and running comfortably within their first hour mountainboarding. Instruction from a qualified instructor will help you get started safely and easily. We recommend you always wear appropriate personal protection equipment. A helmet, knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards are recommended at all times.
