Powdersurfing: No bindings, no problem

May 28th, 2014 by

Snowboarding’s roots are deeply entwined with surfing, with some of the first snowboards even called snurfers to bring the surf mentality to the snow. But that mentality is far from gone. Powder surfing is alive and well and staying in-step with the origins of our lifestyle.

From EpicTv’s YouTube channel:

Ever wonder what it would be like to snowboard without bindings? Wonder no longer: backcountry powdersurfing is a bindingless fringe sport inspired by ocean surfing and skateboarding but adapted from the early years of snowboarding before bindings had killed some of the freedom of expression on powder-filled peaks. In this episode we take a glimpse into the riding of two of the sport’s best riders: Jeremy Jensen and Paul Elkins. Hold on tight for some seriously stomped tricks, drops, and lines in the powder playgrounds of Utah and Colorado.
