Every Third Thursday: Raising the bar – next level adaptive snowboarding

Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew are back tackling a new hybrid snowboard project that's inspiring on many levels.

This month's challenge is to merge Signal snowboards technology and Crankbrothers Mountain bike component technology to create a new next-level custom adaptive snowboard customized to get a new crew of shredders on the hill. The motivation for the build is personal—in 2000, good friend and pro snowboarder Tim Ostler was paralyzed from the chest down in a halfpipe snowboarding accident. Despite maintaining an athletic lifestyle, Tim hasn't been snowboarding since.

Watch as the crew build one of the most rewarding boards to date and, after a few setbacks, succeed in getting Tim back out riding with his friends on Every Third Thursday.

We encourage you to push this video forward and share it with everyone you know! How cool would it be if this ETT finds its way into production.

So, hit play and let's all Raise The Bar and give some serious thought to the Next Level Adaptive Snowboard!
