The Snowboard Project is creating independent media in snowboarding

Snowboarding isn't just about tricks on snow - perhaps the best trick snowboarding can teach you is learning to lead a life of adventure and ever-green experiences.

Snowboarding is more than just a sport - for some, it is a way of life. Our goal is to tell those stories, piece by piece, to render a window into the heart of snowboarding - the people who make it great. 

Real talk. It's the trials and tribulations of snowboarding from the inside out - real, direct, and no punches pulled. The snowboard is an amazing vehicle - beyond the way it defies gravity - it can take you around the world, introduce you to fascinating people and test you in ways previously unimagined. For these people, snowboarding is as much about the rainbow as the pot of gold at the end.

Initially THE SNOWBOARD PROJECT will air three episodes per week with an immediate goal of doing five shows per week. 

In order to continue producing content that matters to snowboarding, we need your help. 

With your support - we can tell these stories.
