10. Kristal Snowboard
The Kristal Snowboard might just be Mexico's first contribution to snowboard design.
It's ideal for seedy crotch voyeurs
This might just be Mexico's last contribution to snowboard design
9. SNO GO
An idea for a motorised track that bolts on to a standard snowboard. It comes complete with a already defeatist product name, and an incredibly complicated power glove
Which is controlled by motherfucking rock!
The tracks are folded away during descents, but give it the sign of the horns and the tracks will pop-out and back up the hill you go. Advertised anti-gravity capabilities are still at the prototype stage.
Turns your snowboard into a disappointing suitcase.
"LUG Snowboard Transportation - A passion-driven project from years of personal experience snowboarding around the world. This Patent Pending product aids with instant snowboard transportation by increasing comfort, reducing muscular pains and reclaiming vital energy expended, allowing a rider to do more."
It's just a plastic handle.
7. Adjustable Snowboard Helmet
We've seen similar helmet ideas before and it always seemed a good idea to me.
If someone can get it to look less twatish
Some of the earlier versions actually looked a lot more promising...
6. Reaper Goggles
We're already into negative marks for the use of the word 'ideations', then comes the pay-off of the finished product...
"Skullz Snowboard Goggles - The first concept are snowboard goggles mimicking the look of a human skull. Initial sketches were literal interpretations of a skull turned into goggles. However, several variations led to a more refined design which takes certain characteristics of the skull to give the goggles a skeletal and bonelike appearance. These goggles are designed to appeal to the crazy wild extreme sports segment of the market."
5. Avalanche - Snowboard Ultimate Vehicle
I'm never too sure about anything called 'avalanche', but it does have some nifty underseat snowboard boot storage.
4. World's Most Boring Bookself
How about this for some alternative camber
"World's Most Boring Bookshelf - Hand Modified snowboard bookshelf. Takes snowboarding to the ultimate low.... reading."
A surprising thing to develop, considering the guy so clearly hates reading.
Which might explain why it makes for a really shit bookself after all
300 hours of work went into building this massively over-engineered worse-than-a-snowboard concept. Looks pretty though.
It's a robotic snow vehicle.
Robotic vehicles would be bloody ace. Of course it would probably need some sort of engine and associated mechanisms, which this design seems suspiciously light on.
The best bit though, is clearly the phallic logo,
1. Snowboard Resume
This lad just painted an old snowboard white, stuck his resume on it and sent it to Burton.
I'm going to guess he didn't get the job.
