    Wow, 1939 boarding!! Cool leather strap rear binding, with wood block boot retention "system". I liked that "steering stick" they were using, although the track they were riding in didn't really need a whole lot of turning control. I wonder what those original boards would be worth today.

    Cool vid bOardski! Thanks for sharing.

    They never said they invented sliding on a plank

    Neither Jake or Tom has ever said they invented it... they commercialized it in the current timeframe is all...

    They knew that hundreds if not thousands of years ago some young person or adult for that matter slid down the snow on some plank...
    but of course, I use the Pseudomorph Style of Snowboarding

    I was stoked to see a 'bunker' from the 1930s in the Colorado Ski and Snowboard Museum in Vail:
