Fischer announces new 'jib skate'

Skating skiing is renowned for being a bit faster and a bit newer than classic skiing, but not what you might call an 'extreme' sport, in the same sense as surfing or skateboarding.

Enter Fischer, who have come up with the 'jibskate', an extrordinary attempt to market nordic skiing to the 'yoof' market. We know nothing more than what Fischer have put up on their website, and it will be interesting to follow the development of jibskating. It's bound to be big in America...
