This is an original Snurfer.
You can imagine all the fun that was had on it. It is missing its original rope and the stickers have peeled on the lower section. It will still look great as part of your collection.
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.
