Riding on snow with no bindings is a thrill that any person can enjoy, and it’s almost free. You can do it anywhere there is snow, even in the city. Powdersurfing, snurfing, Noboarding, split-boarding, cordboarding, snowskating - It's all good. If you're here, we hope it's 'cause the stoke drove ya.

Night Mission: Snurf
It was a strange winter here in the Northeast. We didn't get nearly as much snow as we normally do which makes it tough when you're chomping at the bit to get out for a snurf. When it did snow however, it tended to come in pretty decent dumps but you had to hit it a.s.a.p. because the storms where often followed by rain which would ruin any accumulation we had just received. Hitting it on a snow day isn't always as easy as it sounds. Jobs, kids, commitments, significant others... often conspire to keep us from what our brains are screaming out for all day long as we sit chained to a desk watching the snow piling up outside.
You don't need to be hopping out of a helicopter somewhere in Alaska to appreciate everything snurfing in freshly fallen snow has to offer. A sleepy suburban golf course blanketed in creamy pow and the right frame of mind is as good as any.
Here's a little comp of some of my night time sessions from the past season. These little snurf sessions kept me stoked and smiling through the dry spells as I eyeballed the radar waiting for the next storm to arrive. Hope you all enjoyed the same kind of stoke we did this past winter. Snurfing rules!
