The first object that resemble a snowboard was invented by Sherman Poppen in 1965 and was called the Snurfer (combination of Snow Surfer) The snurfer was fairly simple and had no bindings, what is called a noboard. However the state of Utah claims that the first snowboards were developed and manufactured there in the early 1970s, and was commemorated in 2007 by the United States mint among the three semi-final designs of the Utah state quarter. At least one source believes that Jake Burton Carpenter (founder of Burton Snowboards) and/or Tom Sims (founder of Sims Snowboards) invented snowboarding.
