Skateboards SKATEBOARDS

Snakeboard

The snakeboard was invented in 1989 by James Fisher and Oliver Macloed Smith. Its creation came about as a progression from the original skateboard design, taking in aspects of snowboards and surfboards. The difference between a snakeboard and a skateboard is the snakeboard has a central board with two extra foot pieces attached on pivots. Feet are usually attached to the snakeboard with bindings, since there is much more movement involved than on a skateboard - as well as more likelihood of injury. The movement itself resembles the smooth curved angles that a snake makes (hence the name).

    Please REMOVE the photo of a RIPSTIK accompanying this article & replace it with a photo of a SNAKEBOARD. They are NOT the same. Doomsday Australia (www.streetboarding.org) are writing an article about this.

    I had one of these in the early 90s. I think it was an Australian invention. It was not dissimilar to a modern day Ripstick
