Funny thing I've mocked all these at some point and we built a teleboard years ago for some drunken Olympics.

There was a guy from the !!!BAKER!!! area that invented a chainsaw driven snowboard. They did a show on him on one of the local shows, all he could do was ride it on flat groomed telemark trails and the skinny skiers hated him, they were going out for a peaceful trip, then here comes 2 stroke snowboard guy .

Do we have to write the word Baker in all caps?

That chainsaw powered snowboard sounds like the fucking jams, but you shouting BAKER at every mention has drowned it out

Apologies in advance... your anal retentive forum reader, grafta

It'd be fairly simple to get this contraption up the hill if you were riding a T-bar. Depends if you like T-bar handles up your ass or not

Sorry grafta, it's something I've done for years, simply to pay my respects to the mtn that I found snowboarding on. Duncan, BAKER's mngr was one of the first guys to let snowboarding on a ski hill in the world, his daughter Amy was the only women that used to compete with the guys.

It still bugs me, but i'll live.

I could pay respects to many things/places/people I respect too but that'd just look stupid. Capitalization serves that purpose in most cases.

As you were

I've got a friend that will actually take out his teleboard about once a year. He'll even take it down the bumps. Weirdest damn thing in the world and its very limited. That and you need freakish balancing skills.

But really the weirdest thing I've seen is a couple people make a centi-board. Basically mounted bindings so you could be on the tail of one board and nose of another.
