Calgary Snowboarder on Dragon's Den
 
Dunno if anyone watches this show, but I am kind of hooked on it.

Anyway, a rider from Calgary tonight got $80k from the Dragons for his Motorized snowboard which looked pretty sweet.
I wonder if my GF will let me buy one.

I saw that episode! Pretty cool idea. Which they wernt so expensive but i can see why the cost is so high. I'd love to try one but i feel after a few times the fun would wear out.

*We're sorry, the Dragons Den Shop is not available in your location*

Though I haven't seen the product (because my server is an overseas one) I'm always a little dubious when people come up with an 'i took something cool that is really good for its intended purpose, and made it do something it wasn't designed to do in the first place' idea.

Still, if I had a totally kooky idea that everyone in the industry was going to mock, the Dragons Den would be the best place to pitch it for backing. I would guess that 'the dragons' knowledge of snow sports would be what they have seen on TV....which is really just energy drink advertisement.

Hmm, a mountain board with a motor and wireless braking/throttle essentially. Nothing new but just more advanced.
I think the price is out to lunch. Sadly these are illegal on roads in Canada.
