Every Third Thursday: Under Pressure – Deep underwater snowboard production

From Network A on Youtube:

ETT Season 4, episode 1: In the season premier of ETT, the Signal Snowboard crew attempts to use the naturally occurring deep ocean pressure to replace the role of a pneumatic press—the machinery currently used to bind the layers of a snowboard together—in production. On location in New Zealand’s Milford Sound, ETT host Dave Lee and Signal Snowboard’s co-founder Marc Wierenga hastily assemble the layers of the snowboard, then sink the final product 100 feet (30 meters) deep under the ocean with hopes that the pressure at these great depths will bind the layers. Natural production—is it possible? We find out in this episode of ETT!
