A little history please….

I’m sure he can tell you more! contact him!

Does it exist somewhere? It would be very interesting if people who know the pieces could put them together to form a brief history of splitboard and splitboarding. I googled a lot to know at least some of the history of splitboarding but there are sure people who know much much more how it all began. Separately in Europe and in the USA… companies, pioneers, projects, hardware, patents… :thumpsup: November 8, 2012 at 11:10 pm #581412 SchralphMacchio 474 Posts Ha!

Name sounds familiar, but don’t know where I’ve heard it… I came to SLC in ’99, but don’t think I’ve met him. Do you got any more info? I’m always down to learn more about the splitboarding history of the Wasatch… November 15, 2012 at 4:10 am #581418 jive stick 110 Posts ^^^^ I could tell a story or two about that and a few other things but… :nononno: wowasatch.com November 15, 2012 at 10:39 pm #581419 wasatch surf 979 Posts @jive stick wrote: ^^^^ I could tell a story or two about that and a few other things but… :nononno: we would like to hear it… Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 21 total) 1 2 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
