To snowboard or to surf? That’s a pretty difficult question. Why not both?
This weekend I head to Lake Tahoe for fresh powder. This year has been the best for over 4 years. Last year’s season wasn’t as good with only 195 in. of snow fall, this year at 303 in. That’s is quite the jump and we’re not even finished.
2016: 303 in. so far!
2015: 195 in.
2014: 223 in.
2013: 141 in.
I’ve been surfing all year around in San Francisco, almost every day. I didn’t get a chance to snowboard while driving through Oregon and the last time I snowboarded was in 2014. This time, I wanted to see if surfing translates to snowboarding.
Does surfing impact your snowboarding?
Here’s how it went down.
In my opinion, surfing is a lot more difficult. There are so many more elements in order to ride a wave. Conditions such as, wave height, swell direction, wind direction and speed and the type of break. It all depends on so many natural elements that affect the outcome of a good or bad session. Not only, its not consistent such as riding down a big mountain.
In any case, snowboarding is fun as shit. And hell yeah! If you can surf, you can snowboard!
