Actually, from entertainment to sports snowboarding developed in 1981. Then there was the first contest riders in the American Leadville, Colorado. And five years passion for riding a Board on snow began to conquer Europe. As it often happens to them, the Americans at first wouldn't put Europeans as snowboarders. In 1987 Americans and Europeans individually hold their major competitions. Those and others call them the world Cup. However, reconciliation happened quickly. Already next year, the first time played in the world Cup competition includes two stages in Europe and two in America.
From this moment the active world "aggression" snowboard begins.
