Ever wondered about some of the origins of snowboarding halfpipe or about the Craig Kelly Burton/Sims debacle? Well here’s another look into the history of snowboarding from Vice. The Tahoe City quarter pipe, snowboarding’s first halfpipe, was originally designed to be the Tahoe City Dump. By covering heaps of garbage with dirt, the city unknowingly made snowboard history. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right? Enter the original East Coast vs. West Coast battle. The clash between Burton and Sims starts with the first snowboarding halfpipe competition and ends with a legal dust-up over each team’s claim to snowboarding legend Craig Kelly. In essence, snowboarding grows up.
