Christmas Schmistmas. The really important date for your calendar comes five days after the annual turkey-telly-booze fest: the 30th December is World Snowboard Day. WSD is organised by EuroSIMA (European Boardsports Industry Manufacturers Association), the Outdoor Sports Valley (European outdoor sports industry association), and the WSF (World Snowboard Federation) and this year is celebrating its 7th birthday.

To help celebrate everything that is great and good about snowboarding, The Snowboard Asylum are hosting five events around the UK, in: Aviemore, Milton Keynes, Braehead, Castleford and Tamworth. There will be snowboard hardware demos, shred sessions with TSA riders, trick tips, snowboard film screenings and much more. Check out the full TSA World Snowboard Day programme here.
