The Snowfer is a patented sled for boardsailing on snow and ice, using a conventional windsurfing rig. The basic techniques are quite similar on water but considerably easier since the "tipping effect" is eliminated.

Snowfering.....a sensation of speed and motion
The dream of man to move at high speed while utilizing
and enjoying nature's free energy becomes very much a reality while Snowfering
on snow and ice.
If you are a windsurfer, you probably have all the equipment needed to sail on Snowfer. Generally, we use 1 meter smaller sail on snow and ice what you use on water in the same wind conditions. The most common sail size is 3.5 - 4.5 - 5.5 (m2), these sail sizes gives you a good wind range. To install the sail on the Snowfer you need a standard 8 mm short board star base connection (like Neil Pryde or something similar to it). All new sails seems to handle cold temperature quite well.
Those with no windsurfing experience but want to
try this hot new sport, we will help you get started by giving you all
the information you need to know on what equipment like
that suits you the most (We sell complete units if needed).
