So I was thinking, it is going to suck to grow up and get a 9:00 to 5:00 job at some place that I will most likely hate. I'm going to hate waking up everyday, and get no sleep every night. Whether I make a lot of money or not, I am going to have to throw away AT LEAST 8 hours of everyday. You take another 8 hours of everyday out for sleep. That leaves you only 8 hours and who knows to what societal bullshit that will go to.
SO, I thought why not get a job that I like? Now, it doesn't have to be in the snowboard industry; it could be surfboards, longboards, freebords, or skateboards. I'm not talking about being a professional, a retailer, etc. I mean building boards.
Let me elaborate. I don't mean literally building boards, more theoretically. A couple of years ago, I decided I wanted to be a physicist. Unfortunately that means either making bombs or spaceships and working way more than 40 hours a week. I find physics interesting, but not enough to throw my life away for the government.
So one day I was thinking, who comes up with all this snowboard technology? Board material like all the different types of wood, fiber glass, UHMW, basalt, bio- plastic beans, board technology like concave, rocker, drop through, bowl, camber. I mean check out all the technologies of rocker and camber combo Lib Tech has ... Lib Tech Snowboards » Snowboard Technology
So if I were to sum this relentless rant up, it would be.. Who are these people, and how do I become one of them; are they physicists, biologists, chemists, botanists, environmentalists? How do I nail a job in the snowboarding industry?
