The Pure Boarding Programme!

Equipment and Set-up

Pure Boarding has developed the equipment and set-up to make snowboard-carving easy to learn, exciting and safe.

This combination of equipment design and set-up permits high performance in all terrain and snow conditions (groomers, moguls, powder, steeps, hard-pack, etc.).

The key is a wide board which allows an open stance without toe-drag and a flexible connection between the board edge and the rider (flexible bale bindings and flexible back boot), giving stability over all terrain, quick edge changes so important on steeper slopes, high edge pressure to carve hard-packed snow.

The Pure Boarding equipment and set-up helps the rider get low, which is key to a safe but exciting ride, and simplifies the carver’s life - no more wondering which snowboard to take to the slopes – one board excels in all conditions.

Snowboard-Carving equipment is expensive so before you commit to the sport and buy the equipment, you may want to attend a Pure Boarding event where we can lend you some equipment and give you the instruction to help make your decision easier.


Over the past 25 years, Pure Boarding has developed an easy to learn technique which is both exciting and safe. You quickly become proficient and confident on most terrain and snow conditions.  

A key element of this technique is an open stance which is stable and makes it easy to bend one’s knees to get low and lay-down carves. Early hip rotation initiates turns and keeps the hips over the board, which helps edges grab to avoid skidding, even on hard-packed snow.


Pure Boarding has created a growing international community of friends who look forward to meeting-up with other members of the Pure Boarding family particularly at Pure Boarding events, where they can renew friendships, improve their riding together and simply enjoy a truly exciting and enjoyable winter sport. It is not about competition or ‘posing’. It is about fun and enjoyment together in winter.

The desire to enjoy and improve their carving motivates many to stay in better shape year-round, particularly as the new season approaches, which improves their overall health and well-being. For many people, Pure Boarding has been a life-changer – being a Pure Boarding carver and being part of the community becomes an important part of your personal identity.


Pure Boarding organises an annual calendar of over 10 events in Europe, North America and Asia, where people can learn, become part of the Pure Boarding family and enjoy winter together, both on and off the slopes. Events are the glue which brings together all the elements of the complete Pure Boarding program.


Pure Boarding has a team of high quality instructors at all events. The instructors help newbies learn the easy technique, help experienced riders advance towards their next personal goal and challenge top riders to even higher performance levels in all conditions.
