Rules

There are no written or standardized rules for pine boarding. Riders however should take weather conditions into account, as overly moist conditions prevent the deck from properly sliding over the needles.

Description

Pine Boarding is the sport of boarding down pine needle covered slopes on a skateboard deck (no trucks or wheels). Pine boarding is the sport of gliding down pine needle-covered hills on a wheel-less skateboard deck. Smoothed down to ensure a minimal amount of drag, the deck is heavily concave, reminiscent of an older style of design. A rider's focus is on maintaining control and performing tricks while going downhill.
