When the first modern snowboard, the snurfer, was created in 1965 it was considered a kid’s toy. Snowboarding has come a long way since then, but it still prides itself on its playful nature (Just check out the names of the tricks). If a sport like this fires your creative urges, we have some good news. A few weeks ago, we launched a competition in conjunction with the snowboarding company Burton, for playful artists, photographers and film-makers just like you.
