The precursor of the modern snowboard came about in 1965 when Sherman Poppen invented the Snurfer. The toy proved hugely popular and in 1968 Sherman Poppen organized the first snurfing competition. 


The '70s saw the creation of the first modern snowboard company Winterstick and the start of the Jake Burton and Tom Sims rivalry. The two spent more than a decade engaged in a bitter war that pushed the progression of both equipment, tricks, and competition formats, with Sims organizing the first world championship halfpipe competition in 1983. 


By the mid-'90s, snowboarding had become the fastest-growing winter sport in the world and has since its debut in 1998 become a staple of the winter Olympics.



Even though it is possible to bet on snowboarding, the betting opportunities are limited to major events, such as X-Games, World Championships, and the Olympic Games. However, with snowboarding being both very popular and still a young sport, we can only assume that the opportunities to bet on snowboarding will increase in the future.



Even though consistently betting favorites can be a profitable strategy in the long term, it will require a sizeable bankroll to capitalize on low odds. Therefore, do your homework, watch the qualification events and keep up to date with the latest news on injuries and current form.  

As in all sports betting, the more you know about a sport, the better your chances are of finding value bets.
