The Inertia

People are always trying to bring surf style to the hill. Making turns in armpit-deep fluff that resemble Conner Coffin’s rail game at Rincon is snowboarding’s holy grail. The opposite, however, has never really been a discussed pursuit. Until now.

Leave it to Ben Gravy to get an idea like this, strapping himself into a snowboard then paddling out the back to complete the snow/surf crossover.

“Snowboards don’t float,” you might be thinking. “And he’s gonna sink like a true Jersey mobster – just fit him with cement shoes.”


It turns out there’s a very good reason nobody’s been experimenting with the snow-to-surf crossover possibilities. But of course, this is Ben Gravy we’re talking about, so you know he’s not giving up after taking just one swing at it.


Only the best. We promise.
