Its been estimated that over 6.1 million people snowboard just in the US alone. According to Chuck Barfoot, the reason snowboarding was invented was because a few surfers wanted to surf in the snow—they totally related it to surfing. If it wasn’t for the influence of Chuck and a few others, we wouldn’t have snowboarding.
Chuck was inducted into Transworld’s Snowboarding Hall of Fame in 1997.
Barfoot created a limited edition "Peggy Oki" signature model in 2003. The new "Peggy Oki" signature model, modified with the most recent "bells & whistles" (shown here) will be available soon!
