Transworld Sport article on NoBoard Snowboards. Video footage of how to ride in powder with your feet free from bindings, drink beer and have a laugh.

The NoBoard–a modified, bindingless board is the co-creation of Cholo Burns and the late Greg Todds. A rope holds it snug to your feet, while a traction pad grips your boots. The ride is like a rodeo, and if you got what it takes you can drop the rope like Wolle.

"The NoBoard is the brainchild of Greg Todds, or G.T. to his friends. A true Canadian snowboard pioneer, Greg chased the snow and its ever elusive stoke for years. Always pushing the sport's evolution, he put together one of the first terrain parks at Lake Louise, Alberta, and then moved on to Whistler, where he built the first "Superpipe" with Al Clark at Brohm Ridge. Finally growing tired of the Whistler scene, Greg moved inland to Revelstoke, eventually venturing even deeper into the B.C. Interior in search of his snowboard Nirvana." Says Pete.

True to G.T.'s pursuit, this year's bash went of again. Terje, Devun, Wolle, Tadashi, Johan, Cholo, Iikka, Eero, the list goes on. So many heavies showed up for the minute or so plunder down the pillow packed, clear-cut run and the few days' festivities.

Does your front binding shearing at about 40km/h count?
