Came into possession of a snowfer board from the 80's. It's fast on ice and works in certain snow conditions, but seems to be a pretty poor emulation of windsurfing... you carve a jibe with OUTSIDE rail pressure, not inside. Keeping the board from turning upwind randomly on snow is a bit of a chore unless you've honed your upwind rail pressure technique...again the opposite of planing on water. In the jibe your also standing on the very tail of the thing with feet pointing forward. I think a kitewing with a snowboard and a pair of skates for real ice would be better "off season" practice for the icebound. Of course snow kiting/sailing is definitely a fun enterprise in it's own right.

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
