Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) October 08, 2009 -- Snowboarding Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Sandboarding. This is part of a new community website that is all about Sandboarding. Members and non-members can visit this Sandboarding page on the Snowboarding Zone website for free at: http://snowboardingzone.org/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Sandboarding information webpage:
"There are great athletes associated with sandboarding, just as there are with many other sports. Erik Johnson holds the worldâs record for the fastest speed on a sandboard and he is also a popular snowboarder and has a skateboarding background. You can see now how all of these sports are somewhat related and if you are good at one, more than likely you can master the skills that are required for the other.
Sandboards are basically like snowboards in that they have similar bindings that strap your feet to the sandboard. Actually a sandboardâs bindings are just Velcro straps secured with Allen Key bolts that help to secure your feet to the board. They are constructed basically on the same designs of a snowboard, but they have to be waxed before each run because once you have finished, the bottom of your board looks like someone has taken fine grained sandpaper to it. Technology has improved, which has helped the construction of the sandboards, but with the sport still taking a backseat to other board sports, there are not very many developments in the technology like there are with the development of finely tuned snowboards.
Sandboards are constructed of plywood with base materials that can withstand the raw elements in which they are used. With glossy finishes, bright colors and funky graphics, a sandboard can be a piece of art, just like a snowboard."
