Prior to 1993,

Starting in 1985 competitions were contested, who called themselves as world championships, including in 1986 in Colorado. Thus, the first snowboard World Cup was about 1987 in St. Moritz played on European soil. However, since it was not already a Snowboard World Association at that time, these contests can not be recognized as an official world championships. After the establishment of the ISF, the first snowboard federation, in 1990, the first ISF World Championships took place in 1993.


From 1993 to 1999, the ISF organized the Snowboard World Championships. However, there was already in 1994 when the FIS discussions to introduce the successful snowboarding as a sport. While the Snowboard World Championships were organized by the ISF in 1993 and 1995, organized by the FIS from 1996 their own world championships. Since most successful athletes, however, started for the ISF, the FIS Championships and ratings were initially derided and boycotted. In 1997 were held the FIS and the ISF World Championships for the first time in the same year. Since the IOC had decided to transfer the management of snowboarding at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano to the FIS, now could only snowboarders who also collected at FIS competitions points to participate in the Olympic Games. Thus, the FIS World Cup 1997, for example, also contested by the ISF athletes, some of which even won the world title. In this way it managed some athletes to become world champion at both events. Because the media and the audience turned towards more and more the FIS competitions, got into financial difficulties and the ISF 1999 was the last World Championship from. From now until 2012, the global event was only held by the FIS.


The FIS World Championships received after 2002, the year was disbanded as the ISF, an even higher priority because many world-class snowboarders now also changed the association to continue mitzustreiten at the highest competitions. The now successful athlete at the FIS World Championships, Jasey -Jay Anderson, had won in 1999 at the last ISF World Championships gold medal.
