Every Third Thursday: The fragile Italian glass snowboard

For this month’s episode, Signal Snowboards’ Founder Dave Lee leaves the factory to travel across the sea to an Italian glass factory to create a handmade glass snowboard—the most delicate build to date! The glass snowboard is cut, pressed, tempered, and ever so carefully transported to the slopes. Signal Snowboards Italian team rider Giorgio “Iannino” Morell takes it for the all important test ride at Abetone ski resort in Tuscany. See how this glass artwork performs under pressure—will it slide or shatter?

Check back every third Thursday of the month for another custom snowboard build from Signal Snowboards.

Watch the previous Every Third Thursday where Signal creates the first penny snowboard.
