Necessity Is The Mother of Invention, Just Not For This Idea

Necessity Is The Mother of Invention, Just Not For This Idea

If only there was a way to collect payment on every time this site has posted an article mocking someones “invention” that will revolutionize snowboarding we would be completely funded and self sufficient, but there isn’t. It’s a sad state of affairs, but we persevere forcing ourselves to watch more and more videos that claim […]

OhSki The Worst Idea From SIA 2015

Every year at SIA (Snowsports Industry of America) show there’s always one item that sticks out as the what the hell is this thing and why does it exist? While thinking outside the box is great and sometimes results in a product that revolutionizes what we love, you also get the flip side of this […]

XON SNOW-1 The Binding No Snowboarder Will Buy

XON SNOW-1 The Binding No Snowboarder Will Buy

The saying of function over fashion has been said pretty much since the beginning of snowboarding. It’s something that resonates with the purists that want the performance from what they use without all the visual bells and whistles. Thankfully we’ve reached a point where function and fashion have melded well and we get stylish functional […]

Rotational Bindings: The One Idea That Won’t Die

Without fail every six months to a year someone else believes they can single handily revolutionize the snowboard world by introducing a rotating binding.

Beanies or Toques depending on who you ask are largely un-revolutionary. By and large regardless of make, model, or logo they all do the same thing. You put them on, they cover your head, you go do whatever in them whether snowboarding or running around town. There is no real differentiation behind them. Well that’s […]

The Million Dollar Kickstarter Idea No One Wants

10 Bad Ideas To Survive The Off Season

The season might be over for most, except for those few select holdouts that have somehow found themselves in a vortex of winter wonderland.

Rotational Bindings – The Cause of the Zombie Apocalypse

Rotational Bindings – The Cause of the Zombie Apocalypse

Originality is completely dead! It has all been done, too death! There is nothing new coming out, instead we opt to regurgitate old ideas over and over to sell to the masses as something new. Truthfully this is the zombie apocalypse that everyone these day seems to prep for. It isn’t in the sense of […]

With all these various board sports you probably find yourself plunking down a good chunk of change across all the various seasons of enjoyment. Well relax it seems someone has invented the […]
