Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

"UK's first membership club for snowboarders" launched today.

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Snowboard Club UK - claiming to the be the first specialised membership club of its type - launched itself today. The website is www.snowboardclub.co.uk and very red-white-and blue it is too!...

SCUK has emerged from the successful website theboarder.co.uk, established in 1997, which has been the liveliest news and discussion provider on the boarding scene for some time. Its coverage of the UK snowdome and slope scene has been particularly strong, with a good sense of community.

SCUK describes itself as "a new initiative between Duncan Worrell of TheBoarder.co.uk and partners Stuart Brass and Spencer Claridge of Soul Sports." This suggests that the new club will not be owned by its members, but it promises discounts as the primary carrot to pull in those all-important members.

Will the members want to control their club, or will they be happy to leave it to 'business'? It remains to be seen!

Membership is £25 for under 18s, £30 for over 18s, or £70 for two adults and two under 18s.

[On a personal note, it's 25 years since I imported those first 20 snowboards into the UK...so any moves towards a national membership body for snowboarding is certainly welcome and overdue. Good luck, guys!]

Thanks for pointing that out, Philip. I put punctuation after the URL and then forgot to test it. Luckily no space mission will ever rely on my computer coding.

What do you think of the SCUK proposition?

Very Impressive. I frequented the old boarder site as a lurker in the forums but the news info and associations with other boarding companies always impressed me.

They were a community based forum and now look like they wanna take it to the next level as a club with some commercial aspects. Good move. Develop your community and then expand and offer more services.

Thats the snowboard scene wrapped up for them. So who will take the "skiing" scene to the next level?

Any thoughts Wink

Maybe a hint of the future for snowheads in years to come?? I wouldn't bank on that other lot though (only teasing!!!) Laughing

Good to see some postive comments on here Smile . The opinions on some other forums has been rather negative, a shame when I think there's a good load of potential behind this.
I've just signed up for membership anyhow Very Happy

I can't see it offering very much to members. I can understand that from Dunx's point of view he has put so much effort into TheBoarder over the years he wants to monetise it but it really does not seem to offer much to snowboarders just a few stickers and vouchers for your £30. If at some future stage they try to make the very successful web forum a members only area then snowHeads can probably guess what will happen!

The best community sites are free and run by people who have the energy and enthusiasm to build them for love of the subject matter. Once commercial interests come into play quality and objectivity dissolve. Anyone remember The Complete Skier? It used to be a great site full of quality articles and resort information until it became a holiday sales brochure called ifyouski.com.
