Every Third Thursday: Electrifying solar powered snowboard

The sun shines brightly on this month’s episode of Every Third Thursday.

Dave Lee and Signal Snowboards team up with Powerfilm Solar to create a solar-powered snowboard! At the Signal Snowboard factory the flexible solar panels are adhered to the snowboard top sheet and then wired into a converter mounted between the bindings.

With the build complete, it’s time to test out the voltage off the grid.

Snowboarder Tyler Flanagan straps in and charges theMammoth Mountain jumps while charging his electronics at the same time — this electrifying new board passes the test. It’s a blast!
