Hobart, Washington (PressExposure) September 16, 2009 -- Snowboarding Zone has just released a new section of their website that has all of the basics on Snowboarding Facts. This is part of a new community website that is all about Snowboarding Facts. Members and non-members can visit this Snowboarding Facts page on the Snowboarding Zone website for free at: http://snowboardingzone.org/.
Here is an excerpt from the new Snowboarding Facts information webpage:
âSnowboarders at one point were stereotyped as rebel young men because when the sport first started out, it was young men who were making the boards in their shop classes or in their garages. It took young men who were daring and dedicated to make the sport as recognizable and popular as it is today. However, with time, things have changed. Now the sport is seeing participation from both genders and the females can be just as daring as the males.
In 2004, 51% of snowboarders were between the ages of 7 and 17 and at that time there were more than six million participants in the sport. If you think about it, thatâs more than half of all snowboarders who were all young. Who knows why the figures turned out this way; it could be because youngsters like to try the next new thing and with the popularity of the sport increasing, youngsters were beginning to try it. With snowboarding having roots in skateboarding, again many youngsters are into skateboarding with the rise of the video games such as Tony Hawk. This could be why more youngsters were participating in the sport at that time.
Only 27% of the snowboarding community was women. Now you see why snowboarding was stereotyped as being a male sport. It was dominated by males and still is today; however, the percentage of women participants is steadily increasing with time."
