If the whole system can go in a backpack and get recharged quickly, seems pretty interesting?

Hahahaha!! Personally, I'd rather have the flying cars and personal jet packs they promised back in the 60's! ;)

Think about it,.. Strap on the board and go "(Jet-Pack) Heli-boarding" any time, anyplace!!! God Damn you Walt Disney for getting our hopes up!!! :laugh:

...of course the BC would probably wind up FULL of BER's (...Booger Eatin' Retards!) :dunno:

Still...imagine that thing quietly ripping pow uphill, go in a backpack and get recharged at the car while you drink a cold one. :thumbsup:

What's the point? The only use I could imagine would be for lazy backcountry riders, but I doubt that thing would work in loose, natural snow nor and I also doubt it would be powerful enough to propel a rider uphill.

In short, dumb idea is dumb.

It looks like a bunch of 19/20 year old students doing a uni project to solve a problem that doesn't exist...

For the creators, i will give you a clue why this has no place in snowboarding...

It's called a LIFT PASS it allows you to get on a lift that takes you to the top of the mountain with no need for any mad over engineered crap that makes you look like a turd... ;)

Just trying to be constructive... ;)

This. That thing is not gonna work in backcountry conditions. It's probably only going to actually work on perfectly maintained groomers. Powder or hardpack and you're done. Plus, it's slower than skinning or hiking. So, it's essentially useless.

If you want more informations about this project or to know about incoming improvements, check our website : www.propulsurf.com
:WTF::WTF::WTF: :blink:

I'm more intrigued by the fact that It took almost a year and a half for them to turn up here, create a new account, dig around and find the only zombie thread relating to their stupid gadget????????

*edit*

…after visiting their web page and watching the video? I don't see as how anything has changed from Kirkrider's first posting this!! However, THIS looks like it just might have some potential,..


If nothing else, it looks fast as fuck!! :D :yahoo:
