Downtown Throwdown – Teaser

Minnesota nice

New city, new features  and over $20,000 in prize money…it’s gonna be BANANAS! The DTTD has grown from a local DIY project to the most anticipated and respected urban snowboarding event in the world, while entertaining tens of thousands of people over the past seven years in Seattle and San Francisco. This year, event creators Snowboy Productions talked with sponsors and riders about the idea of bringing the DTTD to other amazing cities and the overwhelming response was Minneapolis, MN.
“It’s also a nice nod to Minneapolis-based riders like Zac Marben, Jonas & Jordan Michilot and Jake Olsen-Elm who competed in the early years and have really supported the event” said Krush Kulesza. “We’ve had an amazing run in Seattle and San Francisco, but we’re really stoked on the opportunity to move it around each year and really keep it fresh.”

Under Water Snowboard – Under Presser ETT

In the season  premier of Signals Snowboards  ETT, the guys are on location in New Zealand’s Milford Sound, where they attempt to use the worlds largest snowboard press, the ocean.   If you have ever tried build a snowboard you might know that the pressure required to press a snowboard 350-560kPa or about 50 psi and at 100 feet under the sea the pressure is around 400.334 kPa, or about 58.08psi. So in theory this could just work, so why not give it a try.

As an avid scuba diver I must admit this was a pretty cool idea. I just hope in the future someone takes this a step farther and figures out how to mount some type of  Seascooter on a Snowboard so you can shred under water!
