HistorySnowboarding is a very recent sport and is similar to Surfing, skateboarding, and Skiing. In 1963 a young surf freak called Sherman Poppen was dreaming about surfing the magic winter landscape. As a consequence, he built a surfboard for the snow. His first prototype was an about 1,21 m long plastic plank: two kids' skis bolted together. It was a present for his daughter Wendy which soon was a winner in the neighborhood.
