I started snowskating in 1997 on a skateboard deck with packing tape on the bottom, a couple years later I built my first snowskate with a mold made in Jr. High shop class and materials out of my grandpas garage leftover from my uncles defunct snowboard company. When I started snowskating it was fun to ride hills around the city or at the mountain after snowboarding, it didn't take long for me to realize riding without bindings offered a more fulfilling mountain experience. I hung my snowboard up and started making bindingless boards for all snow conditions.
