A little history

The 2002 Morzine Mountainboard Fest was truly the first international mountainboarding competition. Set in the French Alps, it brought together riders from all over Europe, and started the first international efforts to coordinate the promotion of mountainboarding.

After a few years of involvement in various events and communities, Diego Anderson started leading national clubs and associations towards a more professional side of the sport. In 2009, the International Mountainboard Association (IMA) was born and it took on efforts such as event regulation and standardization, and calendar coordination.

Diego worked hard on the IMA, and after many years, decided to pass the responsibility on to someone else. In early 2016, a vote was held and long-time MBS rider Dave Stiefvater from Colorado (USA) was elected President of the IMA.


In early 2018, a new vote took place and Kody Stewart became President, working alongside Matt Brind (UK) and Mikael Gramont (France).
