I started skiboarding (in conjunction with skiing) when Line first started and only made skiboards. I think it's great fun. However, I find that the skiing community doesn't take them seriously and laughs at the mention of them. I could do the same things on my skiboards as I can on my twintips and everybody would just roll their eyes and laugh, but doing things on my skis is, for some reason, 100% more acceptable. For God's sake, Line, one of the most popular ski companies today, only made skiboards at first and it wasn't until a few years later that they started making twintip skis. Where's the respect? Can somebody explain to me why skiboards are laughed at? I'm at a complete loss here.
(No, they're not called "snowblades". That's the model name of solomon's skiboard.)
