|For your Information - Mountain Boards|
Mountainboarding, also known as dirtboarding or all-terrain boarding (ATB), is a well established extreme sport, derived from snowboarding. Riders take to the hills of their local venue. Some may also take advantage of ski resorts. Riding a lift is preferable to walking and the summer lift passes are generally inexpensive. Other accessible terrain includes BMX courses and mountainbike trails. Many courses are designed with jumps and ramps to perform tricks. From the early days there has been a competitive element encompassing racing and freestyle. Competitions have been organised in USA since 1993 and in the UK since 1997. Tracing its roots to the 1970's hotdoggers, skateboard culture has dominated every season since summer ended. Mountainboarding only expands on the possible terrain a boarder can dominate. And the sport is growing strong with every passing season. MBS Mountainboards is widely considered the pioneer of mountainboarding and the industry leader. In 1991 while snowboarding at Heavenly Valley Resort in Northern California friends and MBS co-founders Jason lee and Patrick McConnell decided it would be a fun idea to make something for snowboarders to use in the off-season to keep in shape and practice their moves. Almost 18 years later MBS Mountainboards is still going strong selling boards into over 30 countries around the world. Many of mountainboarding's key innovations were developed by MBS such as the original Open Heel Binding, the "Eggshock" and compression spring suspension combination and the original reverse V Brake system making mountainboarding safer to learn. The US boasts some of mountainboarding's top riders such as Leon Robbins, Jereme Leafe, Akoni Kama, Kody Stewart and Jason Lee (7 time National boardercross race champ). Lee also holds the unofficial long distance jump record of 54' 3" set in the UK. The first UK Mountainboard manufacturer was NoSno which was started in 1992 by brothers Pete and Dave Tatham.
