Fastest snowboarder in the world

Have you ever wondered how fast snowboarders go? We have the answer, although it varies depending on the terrain and how cold the snow is. The snowboarder reaches an average speed of between 25 and 25 miles per hour, that is, between 35 and 45 kilometers per hour. Still, speed data has been recorded that has nothing to do with the average. In 1999, Darren Powell, an Australian snowboarder, reached a speed of 126.4 miles or what is equivalent to 202 kilometers per hour, breaking his own record of 121.7 miles or 196 kilometers.
