SpikeBoarding

(917) 566-3386

SpikeBoarding is the sister sport of Nordic roller skiing other wise known as cross country skiing. SpikeBoarding is practiced on one longboard (a spikeboard) and uses only one shaft (a skateboard spike). The mind set is the same as that of triathletes, swimmers, marathon runners, road cyclists  and as mentioned Nordic cross country skiers. The board and four wheels is treated and approached with a focus to maximize strength, endurance along side balance. The sport is fantastic for life long, full body stamina for recreation and the skill set is incredibly useful for local transportation. SpikeBoarding is more simple to master than hockey and far less complicated than cross country skiing. The sport is very new and early participants will have fun and make global sports history as the sport grows. SpikeBoarding cross training will benefit all youth but most specifically for hockey, lacrosse, dance,  swimming, football, and baseball.

Reviews

As a lacrosse coach and former NCAA Athlete, I can say with authority that SpikeBoarding is an excellent cross trainer (hockey, lacrosse, field hockey etc.). Improves, functional strength, bilateral development, core, stamina. More importantly is loads of unstructured fun, kids (12 plus) love it!

I am a Norwegian Spikeboarder. I love to combine my two favorite sports, cross country skiing and longboarding in Spikeboarding. It is a lot of fun and more efficient than long distance pushing. I commute to work with my Spikeboard. In three weeks I will be crossing a mountain plain (Jotunheimen) on the Spikeboard. It is the best exercise I have been doing ever and the most fun!
Go Spikeboarding!!!

Awesome sport!!

A new and unique sport that combines Nordic cross strokes, endurance, balance and massive workout among other benefits.

I saw this guy on a longboard using only spikes to climb a mountain hill on youtube… The man turned up to be New Yorker Enrique Cubillo who invented the sport, and after contacting him I’m looking forward to be the first Spikeboarder here in Denmark!

Spike on!
