Every Third Thursday: Project Runway Signal & FIDM Snowboards

Signal Snowboards drops into high fashion this month on Every Third Thursday. Series host Dave Lee and the Signal factory crew team up with The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and student designer Kelly Knaggs to create an avant-garde snowboard to complement her outerwear line. Utilizing fabric and sublimated metal imagery as visual elements and an unusual asymmetrical shape featuring a tail whip, the Signal factory crew, in true Project Runway fashion, complete the final piece just in time for the runway premier at FIDM. The flashy board passes the fashionable test—bit is it functional?

Manu Dominguez and Pat Garvin put the board to the test at Bear Mountain. The whipped tail shape with a short toeside edge and a longer heelside makes for a real soul surfer of a board. Check back Every Third Thursday of the month for another custom snowboard build from Signal Snowboards.
