Some "cutting edge" innovations here for the progression of snowboarding....... :lol:

why would you want to go head first down the slope, your face a foot from the snow?? Powder......no..........smashing your face after landing a jump......no.......missing a rail and jamming your face into it.....no

 

Why?........Just WHY?!

Handles on a snowboard?! Like stabilisers on a bike?!

Nice elevator music tho :dance:

Why do you need the sail? What is it doing? Gravity is propelling you downhill, the sail is obsolete and looks rather a PITA to keep a hold of

yeah I can see the "why" in that.....but its not REALLY needed. You can get still get around without it. Also it may fall into the same category as FLOW bindings, where the ease of use is questioned by the naked, gnarly hardcore ratchet riders :party:

Agree with you there MO. Sounds like a great idea. It would make sharing a ski lift with a boarder a lot easier.
