This is almost worse than the snowboard brake.

Atleast it was just for fun though. Presenting the glass Snowboard!

That was one of the few youtube vids I've enjoyed watching in the last while! I was surprised it didn't break as soon as he started playing with it at the bottom!

Already posted. I think you are missing the point of ett, these boards are nonproduction creations by Signal to see what crazy things they can come up with and produce for fun.

Didn't see it.

I'm not missing the point, hence the just for fun. I thought it was a neat vid, surprised the bindings held on.

Dont understand how this is even remotely close to being worse then that board brake crap..

If i had the money and equipment and time id do the same thing signal does on ett, trying different things for fun. I really enjoy the glass snowboard actualy wish i had one, also the solar panel board i would enjoy havjng aswell.

Yeah, I think the point of the snowbrake is that those idiots were serious!

The only way this comes anywhere near the snowbrake is that they were both on angrysnowboarder.

This is awesome and the snowbrake is retarded. To see glass function as a snowboard is incredible.

The funny thing to be is the glass is functioning as core, base, edge, dampening material, etc. etc. etc. all in one! I realize they have two bonded layers but still. I'm impressed it rode as well as it did!

I think the trouble I'd have with building my own board is, I'd want multiple layers of kevlar, zylon, cf, quadraxial FG, rubber, etc. in there. The thing would be an inch thick!

I'm surprised it moved at all, considering there was no structure on the bottom...or was there?

Would never have to wax again! Edging may be a little tricky though.
