Airboard® is the brand name for high-end inflatable sport products. Swiss designer Joe Steiner developed a snowbodyboard in the nineties, made from light, but extremely durable urethane coated textiles.
In 2001, after 10 years of development Snow-Bodyboard is presented to the public by fun-care AG a newly founded Swiss company. One year later, Airboard snowbodyboard was nominated finalist for ISPO Brandnew and wins a booth at ISPO, the world largest tradeshow in Sports.
The new Sport was taking many European and Japanese winter resorts by storm. The biggest advantage of snowbodyboarding is its short learning curve (30 minutes) bringing an entire new crowd to the snow. It is a dynamic and highly addictive movement – a real refreshment in the snow-sport industry.
In 2010 Airboard® presented inflatable Surfboards, just in time to be part of a new hype in water sports. The product is different from the products of well-known competitors. Nevertheless the performance and stiffness of the SUP was higher than what has been seen before.
The Ultralight Edition developed for the SUP season 2019 again sets new standards in the SUP industry. The packing size and weight have been reduced by more than 50%. This innovation is complemented by a new, patented pumping system.
