Podcasts have held their place in the media space for quite some time now. With the pandemic, the position of the existing ones was strengthened and at the same time of "sitting at home", many new and interesting ones emerged. However, we are especially interested in those in whom the adrenaline in our blood rises only when we listen to them. These are podcasts focused on action sports. From snowboarding, freeskiing, skateboarding, biking to surfing and everything in between. That's why we have selected for you a few podcasts focused on action sports, which we think should definitely not be missing in your headphones. Ready? Tune in!
1. The Bomb Hole
In 2020, a snowboard podcast called The Bomb Hole was created. Pro rider Chris Grenier and photographer Ethan Stone, talk to top riders and big names from the snowboard and freeski world.

4. FN'Rad Snowboarding Podcast
FN'Rad Snowboarding Podcast was founded in 2015 and brings interesting interviews with snowboarders from around the world. The founder and host of this podcast is snowboarder Erik Traulsen, who is inspired by the stories of people from the snowboard industry, which he tries to convey to his listeners. The podcast was created because when Erik worked as a postman, he listened to podcasts all day, but he lacked distinctive snowboard names and legends in them. He therefore decided to start interviewing them himself before anyone else did.
