The Snowboard Association Germany e. V. (Snowboard Germany) is the professional association for snowboarding in Germany founded on November 22nd, 2002 . The association is based in Planegg, southwest of Munich .


Snowboard Germany emerged from a joint initiative of the snowboard division of the German Ski Association (DSV) and the German Snowboard Association (GSA). Together, DSV and GSA snowboarders built today's structures.


The German Snowboard Association continues its activities as the largest and most important snowboard club in Germany. The self-image of the GSA changes insofar as it recognizes the SVD as the responsible association for snowboarding in Germany and gives up all ambitions to be considered a separate association. In agreement with the SVD, the GSA is committed to mutual support between the new association and its most powerful club to promote snowboarding on a national and international level.

“The SVD wants to be the common roof for all snowboarders in Germany, for all freeriders, freestylers, racers and boardercrossers, from popular sports to teaching to top-class sport. The SVD sees itself as a point of contact for industry, business and tourism in all matters relating to snowboarding. It should serve as a mouthpiece for snowboarding both internally and externally. "
