8 Strange Surfaces You Can Snowboard On (That Aren’t Snow)

Slag heaps, volcanoes and astroturf - it's all possible. Sort of.

Most snowboarders have tried a spot of pond skimming at some point or another, often with hilarious results. Though the guys at Atomic and Alterna films have shown us how it’s done.

But what about actually riding water, after all it’s basically just really really soft snow right?

We’re not talking wakeboarding here but actually strapping on your board and shredding your nearest river/lake/stream. This is more popular than you might first think with people giving it a go everywhere from the Japanese above to these Danes.

Even legendary British free-rider James Stentiford gave it a go once in this Ford advert, with the help of some additional “horsepower” and a cheesy voiceover.
