About

Boardistan is not the world’s first action sports blog, but it knows them well. Founded by “The Editors” sometime in 2007, the site is destined to become a popular one-stop information source for Action Sports professionals and fans of Surfing, Snowboarding, and Skateboarding and the industry that surrounds them.

For the past eleven years The Editors have presented honest, sometimes biting commentary on the business side of action sports as well as aggregating the most compelling stories published in both the mainstream and endemic media. But then they ran into legal issues which forced them to look for work elsewhere.

The name Boardistan is derived from the idea that when the political forces controlling The Industry grow too powerful, the only way to take it back is through the use of freedom fighters. We are those freedom fighters and our republic is Boardistan.
