We believe hiking trails are vastly underutilized places where people can find some snowboarding bliss!
So we created the trailboard to handle
the wide variety of conditions you'd encounter on trails while being super portable, something important for all hiking gear.
It all started with a bunch of broke kids from the east coast trying to ride without spending crazy money on lift tickets. We tried snowboarding on backyards, sledding hills, and hiking trails. It was a ton of fun but a lot of work - walking up with heavy snowboards and constantly strapping in and out was a pain.
But, Mundo founder Chris Pembridge saw huge potential in these modest hills. With a background in industrial design, Chris set out to create a board that would turn any snowy hill into a free ticket to the ski resort.
trailboarding is born
At every snowy hiking trail, we couldn't stop asking,
"Wouldn't it be awesome if we had a snowboard?"
It always felt like such a waste to walk down a hill during our winter hikes and there are so many perfect rolling hills that you encounter along the way. We saw this as endless opportunity to ride without breaking the bank.
After years of prototyping, testing, and refining, the trailboard was born.
In 2018, Chris recruited two of his trusted friends, Bert and Jojo and launched a successful Kickstarter. Watch our Kickstarter video below.
where we are today
At Mundo, we believe there is a better way to enjoy winter. A more rewarding and cost-effective way where you can snowboard where you want and how you want. We're obsessively passionate about it, so we made it our mission to provide you with the most portable snowboard ever.
all of our boards are hand crafted in western New York and we take pride in using sustainable materials.
