To create a sport that makes epic snowboarding moments a part of everyday life.
Built by snowboarders
We are obsessed with our sport. Every product we build, every app we create, and everything we do, is to make snowboarding a bigger part of your everyday life.
Summerboard Mobile App
The new frontier for the Summerboard is our mobile app, which was developed and launched in 2020.
The mobile app will enable community engagement, ride tracking, calorie counting - but also trick detection, trick scoring and Summerboard games and challenges that make use of the on-board sensor and the mobile app.
Shipping the Summerboard
The start of a new era began when the Summerboard started shipping in 2019.
The new model was a massive upgrade that our customers loved - and compared the upgrade like going from a blackberry to an iPhone.
Building the Summerboard
After even more lessons in the field, we realized that we had taken the V2 as far as it could go, and now needed a brand new model. Therefore, we started development on a new model that would hold our original company name - Summerboard.
We also developed the revolutionary Powerball Drive Wheel, which made learning and riding so much easier and more intuitive.
Launching the V2
We learned a ton over the first year of shipping and getting feedback from our customers.
We integrated more than 30 improvements to the original board we shipped, so in September of 2017 we launched the LEIFTECH V2 model.
The first 5 months were spent developing the molds to create the LEIFTECH board, and on May 15th 2016, we shipped out the very first production board.
The last 6 months of 2016 were spent shipping pre-ordered boards.
Building the LEIFTECH
We quickly realized that the crowdfunding stage was not nearly enough to get us over the finish line on the product.
So we continued taking pre-orders on the website and working day and night to get the board from a prototype to a working product that a customer won’t break the first day.
By New Years Eve, we had our first product.
Proof of Concept
The first year was spent developing a working proof of concept, which was launched in May 2014.
Then the rest of the summer was spent improving and filming a crowdfunding video worthy of your support.
We raised nearly $70k on Indiegogo over the last 3 months of 2014 under the first product name LEIFTECH.
Launching Summerboard Inc.
Summerboard Inc. was established in December 2013 to bring Aaron’s invention to market through a company that would be dedicated to making snowboarding an everyday sport.
