Google run the internet and they watch and record every single thing you do online, which is bad for things like personal privacy, but great for producing interesting snowboarding statistics.  They've just released the Google Zeitgeist which is a list of the most searched terms in 2010. Snowboarding clearly doesn't have the same significant global impact as the earthquake in Haiti, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico or Justin Beiber, but we did find a few interesting things and while we were at it we took a look at some of the other snowboarding related stats we could ply from Google’s cold electric soul. In this article we find out lots of exciting snowboard facts including:

  • Which country loves snowboarding the most
  • What the kick-ass Boy Scouts were wearing in 1983, and...
  • Is Shaun White bigger than snowboarding?

E.g. 

Unfortunately fellow blogosphereist, Misplaced Person got in touch afterwards to break the bad news that monoskiing is somehow still alive. So we decided to brave it and take a look at what’s been going down in the world of monosking...

The last two years have seen an unprecedented increase in space exploration themed marketing campaigns for snowboard companies. I've no idea why, but all of a sudden everyone’s at it.

According to some of the latest surveys about 25% of people in the UK and US don’t believe that man has landed on the moon. That’s a frightening quantity of mentals. I imagine they might also be a bit sceptical that snowboarders have now conquered space, but we have gathered together some photographic and video evidence that will blow their tiny little minds...
