You think snowboarding’s cool? Check out the next evolution of snowboarding: Noboarding. Take your standard snowboard, strip the bindings and stick a stomp pad on top. Then rip powder sans bindings. The niche sport gets back to snowboarding’s surf-like roots, and opens up a whole new world of tricks in the process. Granted, there are some obvious limitations to boarding without bindings, but, damn, it looks cool.

And these dudes in Utah have taken it a step further and have started making their own Noboards out of nothing more than plywood and some grip tape. Now that’s low-fi.
