 Skiboard injuries - Information on injuries sustained whilst skiboarding
In addition, most skiboarders do not use ski poles, preferring to use their arms to both maintain balance and to generate the upper body twisting forces required to perform turns.
In the event that a skiboard does catch an edge or get caught, the absence of a release binding system means that any rotational forces generated have to be absorbed by the lower leg (ankle, tibia and fibula) and/or the knee.
Skiboarders are on average 5 years younger than skiers and about ¾ are male (compared to a 50:50 split amongst skiers).
