Noboard, snurfer, snow surfers?

Anybody have one to sell? What are your thoughts on these things. Was planning on just riding around the house.

take an old board or buy an older longer board than you would normally ride. Twin tip. Lay the board on a table mark the flush end of the back of the board. Lay out your sickest fish tail up through the tip of the tail. Cut with a jig saw. Seal with epoxy. Drill a hole in the tip of the front. Add rope and handle. Pad the deck with sticky back mini cell offset to the back of course or studs. You are bad ass and all

Boom. Snurfer

i've got a burton woody.

Have had it since it was new in the '80s.
I never used the rope hole, but have used it everywhere from the sleeping hills in Ohio to backcountry on loveland pass.

But other than being a novelty at this point they are best left to collectors.

I had one of these when I was a kid and just bought an updated one for the kids. Tougher than snowboarding but really fun.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.

i rode a powsurf last weekend up in steamboat- it was way tougher then I anticipated haha. With a couple feet of fresh snow it was pretty tough to keep any momentum, but I could imagine in different conditions it would be an easier learning process. Either way it was super fun!

Bi deck snow skate is where it's at for fun in the back yard.

I ride a set up made by Ralston Snowskates. The small group of grassroots deck and sub builders are fighting to stay afloat with all the long board companies getting into the market. Lots of poor designs and faulty craftsmanship so do your self a favor and don't buy some junk skate or pow surfer, do a bit more research and buy something that'll last awhile.
