What are board sports? Any sport that is played with a board qualifies as a “board sport.” Surfing is the original board sport, and skateboarding was then invented by surfers who couldn’t get enough of surfing and wanted to ride on a board on land.

Since the focus of this website is on water sports, our section on board sports covers only topics related to water-based board sports instead of any land-based board sports such as skateboarding, snowboarding, skiing, etc.

This section contains all the articles we have written for the board sports we cover on this website: Surfing, Windsurfing, Kitesurfing, SUP Boarding, Wakeboarding.

If you’re interested in a specific board sport, please click into any of these links for articles that are specific to that activity.
