This Snurfer has its original nylon braided rope and has its original Yellow paint. It is in fair to good condition. It shows some wear. It has a "chip" off the nose, and there is some cracking , but you can imagine all the fun that was had on it - and it has survived that, so we're confident it will hold up and show very well in a collection or on the wall. Snurfers and Skifers were the first versions of snowboards. Most of the early pioneers of modern snowboarding owned these “toys” throughout their life. Jake Burton (one of the first to shape vintage snowboards) would modify Snurfers in his backyard. Sherman Poppen invented Snurfers in 1965 in Muskegon, Michigan. Many attribute Sherm as the father of modern snowboarding.
