If a problem can be envisioned then so can a solution. This seems to be the mantra of inventors who feel snowboarding has too many faults.

A 51 billion dollar spectacle meant to showcase the talents of the worlds best athletes, but more so to let everyone know that Russia wasn’t a bankrupt communist failure. As greed and nationalistic bravado have become the main […]
