Book Description:

In snowboarding's infancy, it didn't have many fans. Many ski resorts in North America banned the early snowboarders; in 1988, Time magazine declared snowboarding "the worst new sport." Surprisingly, it has grown from being a marginal activity for a few oddball participants to an Olympic sport with mass appeal—in just four decades.
