Mountainboarding as an extreme sport
An extreme sport to try out
Mountainboarding — or all-terrain-boarding — is a new extreme sport derived from snowboarding. It can be done on any surface, including grass, tracks, dirt and rocks, and involves riding on a large board with mounted wheels — which is very much like an over-sized skateboard.
Who is mountainboarding suitable for?
Mountainboarding is suitable for just about anyone with a sense of adventure. The good thing is that it can be done whatever the weather — plus there’s generally no age limit involved. Mountainboarding will particularly suit snowboarders during warm months when there is no snow available.
Risk factors of mountainboarding
There is a small element of risk with mountainboarding, but that is very much dependent on the type of terrain you’re tackling. If you’re a beginner then there are centres popping up with beginner friendly courses laid out — and of course there’s plenty of outdoor places for you to discover yourself! The risk factor in mountainboarding is very much down to yourself and your own skills.
