I would love to start a snowboard manufacturing co. It's a nice fantasy. But you have to be in a position to not make any money for a long while (if ever). You have to know the industry well enough to pick a good niche. You have to know snowboards well enough to be able to 'feel' what works and what doesn't (everyone thinks they do, most are wrong. Just like everyone thinks they're above average). You have to have artistic talent available as well (unless you're starting Blank snowboards).
But if you did get it together, imagine your job is to take new snowboards to the mountain and test them. And get paid for it!
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
