Sometimes it's good to know where things came from, to fully understand how they've developed into what they are now. That sounded vague didn't it. We're talking about the evolution of the snowboard. Parker Duke decided to take a trip down memory lane to a time before he was even born and cutomize his snowboard into something a little bit more primitive and resembling a torpedo, for a test run at Mt.Hood.
He had this to say:
"I had a board that was pretty beat up from hitting rails and urban stuff most of the winter, so my friend Ted and I thought it would be sweet to cut up our old rail boards for the last day on hill at High Cascade a.k.a. "Vacation". It surprisingly hung in there and is extremely fun/dangerous. Riding switch is definitely not an option on that board - immediate scorpion."
