Skiboarding with the girls Tips Welcome to the Women's Skiboarding Page
Let's face it, the world of sports caters to the male gender, so it's not always easy to relate to everything you read in an article or review. Many women love sports and excel at them. But others feel that they are too unathletic to ever try any sport, much less skiboarding. You might read the reviews, but say "Yeah, but what about me? I'm not like the people writing the articles. I'll probably kill myself on the first run." Well, the people writing the articles ARE regular, ordinary people, but just in case, we've created a special section just for women written by women. This section is not so much for the athletic types as it is for the ordinary to non-athletic types, because after all we are the ones who need a little extra convincing.

See what other women are saying about skiboarding:

5 Reasons Why Moms Should Try Skiboarding Too:

No lessons necessary, which means not only will you save a lot of money, but you won't be humiliating yourself in front of your kids who already ski like pros.

No Poles. Get rid of one more thing you can put an eye out with. No more children impaling their siblings. And no more sword fights where someone always ends up crying.

Less to carry. Since skiboards are short and light weight, your kids will not have any excuse to dump their junk on you and expect you to carry it.

Spy on your children. Ever worried and wondered what your kids are really up to after they leave you in the dust? With you on skiboards, they will never be able to shake you off their trail again.

Less chance of injury. Since skiboarding is so much easier to learn than skiing or snowboarding, there is much less chance of a family member getting hurt. Spend quality time on the slopes, not the emergency room.


I wanted to take a couple of minutes to thank you for your quick e-mail responses and your helpful answers. Your company has always been good about those things and I also appreciate that you don't over-cater to the x-games mentality. You recognize that there's more to skiboarding than that.

Thanks,
