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

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

Being stuck in the middle of country that is heavy on deserts and short on snow might not seem like an ideal location for an aspiring shredder but it’s surprising what billions of oil dollars can make possible.

The masive snowdome that is Ski Dubai even attracted the attention of Marco Grilc and Mikkel Bang last year in the first episode of Grilosodes’ third season.

Tantalisingly the episode closed out with the pair dropping in on a monster dune before cutting to credits.

But even if they did catch amazing footage of Grilc and Bang carving the sand like it was so much golden pow, we doubt they would’ve looked much cooler than our crazy Peruvian friend Victor Chavez with his awesome 80s metal soundtrack.

Interestingly, he seems to have been way more successful in his efforts than Signal’s Every Third Thursday crew too. Perhaps they shoulda paid him a visit instead of getting that monster truck involved?
