This Skifer "Ski Surfing" is in museum condition. It has been preserved with our natural oil and beeswax finish. This model and color combination is actually difficult to find. Original rope, paint and graphics. Vintage Skifers and Snurfers are getting harder and harder to find especially in decent condition. Snow Skimmers, 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.
