THE PICKLE OLYMPICS • Snowboarding was invented in the 60s and was originally called #SNURFING. That's right folks. Snurfing. Snowboarding first entered the Olympics in 1998 at the Japan Winter Games, and now is incredibly popular largely due to some guy named @shaunwhite. Ever heard of him? Some call Shaun “The Flying Tomato” due to his red hair, but we'll stick with “The Flying Pickle” since pickles > tomatoes.
