Thumbs up snowboard brake

I got asked to test this system by ski patrol in Australia ( who currently use them ) , was surprised at how much easier general riding was it . No more looking for a board rack or stashing my board upside down & hoping no one knocks it over .

that's too much work to put the pin back. I just rather flip it upside down or stab the snow with the tip or tail.

Nice first post btw..

If ski patrol is currently using them, why would they ask you to test them???

Riding this season...

OMG!!! Surely You aren't suggesting that the OP was being less than honest in his statement that he was picked at random to test this product and is only posting here out of his/her genuine desire to inform us of a truly remarkable new product that He/She is in NO way associated with financially????? Surely you're not!!!!

Deac,!! You are a turning into a completely cynical, sociopathically distrustful human being!

You could get this "brake" and risk the structural integrity of your board by screwing it in and risk yourself by falling on the lil spikes OR you could just flip your board upside down so it doesn't runaway... No thanks, "snowboard spurs"... there's a snake in muh boot.

Gotta love inventions and creativity tho on things that are highly unneeded... A device like this--gotta be invented by a skiier. How have we managed all these years!? :-o

You decided to come to a snowboarding forum, where presumably everyone fucking rips which is why they are so fanatical, to tell us how to stop?! Get the fuck outta here gaper...

I wouldn't be surprised if you did get asked by Australian ski patrol, cunts can't ride for shit... took one of them like 10 mins to catch up to me and a friend when we were waiting at the bottom of a 100m run when my friend got air on a roller. We were just waiting for friends to come down when we realise the dude blowing a whistle telling us to slow down was ski patrol...
