Experience Iceboarding – The fastest game on ice!
It’s one of the fastest sports around. Freeskating, also know as ice-boarding. Found mainly in the “ice belt” of the United States, it’s a great activity if you live in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
Ice Boarding or freeskating has been going on since Air Borne sufboard founder and Long Branch native Paul Mindich invented the original Air Borne freeskate back in the early 1980’s. A bit of a cult-ish winter sport, it’s a natural crossover for those who windsurf in the spring, summer and fall. If there is a long stretch of ice – you’ll probably find a ice-board.
If you get the chance – give it a try!
