This led us to combine the two boards [snowboard and bodyboard] into one, an easier to learn yet still extreme, winter action board.

AXS Snoogee Board is a unique combination of bodyboarding and snowboarding. This action sports equipment is made for the most extreme winter sports enthusiasts. The Snoogee Board allows the rider the control and ability to perform tricks associated with snowboarding, but from a unique angle associated with bodyboarding. The AXS Snoogee Board is currently running a live crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The funding goal of the campaign is $220,000 AUD to help with the production and distribution of the board.
The creators of the Snoogee Board, Ben and Mick Bateman, grew up playing outside and developed a passion for action sports at an early age. This eventually led them to combine their two favorite sports, boogie boarding and snowboarding, to create the Snoogee Board, a snow boogie board. The AXS Snoogee Board is essentially a boogie board connected to a snowboard. This creates a completely unique way to enjoy extreme winter sports.
“I love high performance body boarding in the water and wanted to recreate that feeling in the snow, but wanted to add the control and precision snowboarding offered,” said Ben Bateman, the creator of AXS Snoogee Board. “This led us to combine the two boards into one, an easier to learn yet still extreme, winter action board.”
The AXS Snoogee Board can be ridden in different ways. Primarily it’s designed for the rider to use like a traditional boogie board, on their stomach face first. The rider places their arms a little wider than shoulder-width apart to steer by applying pressure with their elbows and hands. In this stomach-down position snowboard-like jumps and rail grinds, carving downhill and mountains, wall rides and inverted aerial tricks are all possible. Like most action sports, there is some risk involved when riding the AXS Snoogee board, however, it was has been engineered to provide safe fun for its riders. The low center of gravity allows falls to be less dangerous than traditional skis or snowboards.
AXS Snoogee Board is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The campaign’s funding goal is set at $220,000 AUD and early backers can purchase their own Snoogee Board for only $500 AUD. To learn more about AXS Snoogee Board, click here to visit the Kickstarter page.
