Snowboarding Was Originally Called Snurfing…Mind Is Blown

Right here? This is some bullshit.

snurf

So supposedly the story goes as this..Sherman Poppen invented this thing called snurfing in 1965. By 1966, a half a million ‘snurfers’ were sold. At this point in the story, snurf is starting to sound like a word – not hating it. In 1977, Jake Burton Carpenter, an avid snurfer since he was a kid, founded Burton Snowboards which eventually would become the biggest snowboarding company in the business and the term snowboard increased in popularity and eclipsed snurfer.

“SNOW WHITE IS THE BEST SNURFER IN THE WORLD”

Ughhhh yea let’s just keep it “snowboard” and call it a day.
