Letter: Snurfing’s creator speaks

Sherman Poppen
Steamboat Springs

Reference your story by Ashley Dickson on March 12. I am the owner of the word “snurf.” On Dec. 25, 1965, I invented the Snurfer and the sport of snurfing was born. I have been nominated to the Colorado SKi and Snowboard Hall of Fame for this year. If elected I will be in Vail on Oct. 18 for the ceremony. It was a fun story and keeps the history of snowboarding alive.
