Snowboarding has come a long way since its beginnings. It's hard to say who really did it first but there are stories of M.J. "Jack" Burchett shaping a piece of plywood and strapping it to his feet to slide down the mountain that date back as far as 1929. Snowboarding was declared an Olympic Sport in the mid 90's and now almost two decades later it is safe to say Snowboarders are respected as the coolest and gnarliest athletes of any sport, next to skateboarders of course.
