Every Third Thursday – fragile Italian glass snowboard

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmZ1QfZ9SkkIt’s always a pleasant surprise when we realise that it’s that time of month again and a fresh new episode from Signal’s earth-shattering board construction series drops onto our virtual desktops. In this episode of Every Third Thursday Dave Lee heads out to Italy to build a snowboard entirely from glass. Yep, we couldn’t quite get our head around how it could ever work either…

Watch as the gang cut, press and temper an incredible see-through masterpiece and see what happens when they take it onto the hill for a ride. It’s another inspired idea with impressive test results and after last month’s slightly underwhelming penny snowboard, it’s safe to say that Dave Lee and the gang are back on top form.
