  • Fastest Skiboarder of 2014/2015 Challenge

    Back for the 2014/2015 season is the challenge for those of us who like to push it to the limit --- Just how fast can you go and live to tell the tale? Post your results in this thread and make the leaderboard.

    Rules:
    • Two main divisions: Forwards & Backwards -- no separate divisions for gender, age, location, etc.
    • Bonus division: Fastest on Blunt XLs -- Blunt XL speeds can be entered in both main and bonus division.
    • Speed claim must be supported with speed data from Skitracks or similar. Please post screen shot or data output in this thread
    • Speed claim should include: Speed converted to MPH, board model, and location
    • Speed cannot be mechanically assisted (towed with snowmobile or left Skitracks on and got on the highway ... it's the honor system.)
    • Contest starts now and ends 4/30/15 (if you are riding after April that is its own reward).
    • Southern Hemisphere skiboarders may post speeds from the 2014 Southern Winter

    Prizes:
    Simply put -- BRAGGING RIGHTS -- The fastest forward and backward skiboarder win the right to claim "Fastest Skiboarder on Earth" in their SBOL signature block until next season.

      The older guys were kicking ass last year so no age bracketed divisions.

      We did create an over 50 while wearing a cape division last season to keep one person happy and might bring that back if required.

              My money is on you to take the switch speed record. Need to show that Dave Lynam character who's the boss.

                Haha no doubt! Watch out Dave

                I finally got the ski tracks app and tried it out a little bit today on my 500 vertical foot hill. Fastest run clocked in at 52mph on an icy black run, then I went even faster in my car on the drive home - oops!

                52mph at Giants Ridge, MN on KTPs (forward)

                        I didn't think there were any runs long enough at Afton to reach that speed.
