Snowskate[board]: which one? - November 17, 2010, 11:19 AM

I'm an old school skater. Anyone try these snowskates out?

There's the bi-level (that actually has a blade mounted on the bottom), and the regular flat deck with an exaggerated nose & tail. I would figure that having the blade mounted underneath and having that height off of the ground would give the board more of a real skateboard feel especially when popping ollies off of the ground. But I have never tried one out.

Your opinion(s)?

i feel like that would suck when you eat shit and that board goes sliding down the mountain and you have to go chasing after it....at least ski's have a break on them and snowboard is attached with bindings...

I've never ridden the first one with the blade on the bottom.. i don't think i would like the feel of it..

I DO however have a regular snowskate that is fun as shit on the right surface. Can do all regular skate shit on it on the snow..

I could be wrong, but I don't think that snowskate boards are for the steep mountain trails. Mostly terrain parks and flatter stuff, right?

you're correct. Parks, snow covered parking lots, etc.. anyways many of them have leashes just in case. thanks for the opinions everyone!

the first one is sort of an "official" snowskate. It's elevated so it allows you to get pop for kickflips and shit. If i was getting one, I'd get that.

the other kind that cubn has is still fun as shit though, me and him went flyin into trees and fences last year, was a blast.
