A Snowboard that Shreds the Slopes and Catches Trout
By Joe Cermele
Where are all my snowboarders at? I mean, I'm not one of them or anything, but I guess my love of punk music gives me an appreciation of the extreme sports. I've written about fishing inspired skateboards from Santa Cruz before. Graphically the boards were awesome, but they had no fishing function. The same cannot be said of the custom snowboard built in the video below.
The guys at Signal Snowboards were commissioned by Stevel Abel of Abel Reels to make something trouty. It casts. It nets. It shreds heavily. Pretty gnarley stuff, dudes! Maybe I'll play the reverse angle and ask Abel to build me a reel that turns into roller skates. Have a good weekend.
