Snowboarding is a sport of winter, especially exercised in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Russia, Canada and the Nordic countries such as Scandinavia, Sweden and Finland.

In the 90-ies snowboarding experienced a sudden increase, and is now viewed almost like skiing, with a very strongly developed youth culture. In particular, many tourists and youth groups practicing winter sports often during the winter holidays and their way lies far from inhabited places. Since 1998 snowboarding became an Olympic discipline, and the first World Championship took place in 2005 in Canada. The snowboard was invented in 1900 by the Austrian Toni Lenhardt but only the American surfers Sherman Poppen and Tom Sims executed this idea wishing to slide on surfing board along the snow. In 1989 Urs Meiser (Switzerland), and Earl Miller (USA) added security ties to lessen the danger of the sport, but today they are still hardly used. Snow boards are suited even for beginners and children differing only in the forms of the shoes. In 1989 also the International Snowboard Association (ISA) was established, which set itself the goal to hold the snowboarding competitions as often as possible. In order to slide well the snow board needs waxing. The equipment for exercising this winter sport consists of a snowboard, wax, and of course an appropriate clothes. The exercises require physical fitness, predicted by cycling, jogging or similar athletic sports. Since snowboarding influences the joints very much, it would also make sense to exercise the standing on the board.
