I have been boarding since boards where first allowed on resorts with caveats and restrictions, but before inserts and hole patterns

I have seen the kook items like the Swivler come and go a few times over

but one item, in a quarter page add in the back of Transworld, a snowmobile track, mounted to a chainsaw motor, mounted to a Kemper I have never seen repeated until now

dude is on the snowboard builders group on FB, wants this thing to take off and replace splitboards. 

i admire the amount of passion and r&d he’s put into this thing, but man, that’s just not a market people are gonna get in to. 

he’s trying to get some board mfg’s to build boards with inserts for these from the factory.

There's no way that thing will go uphill, so he can't have tested it, or it's just a scam.

Yeah, i ran into a kid that worked for Spark, who designed the solid puck so you could ride Sparks on an normal board. he was trying to market this lone product idea and sell it himself, i explained to him his main market was photographers who need to save on bag weight while traveling. I think he sold the idea to Spark to sell, because at most it is an accessory 

 

honestly, i could see rural kids in flat states having fun with this in fields more than anything else. if i remember trans world did test on the chainsaw motor kemper, they didn't do anything more than take it on some flat trails

He thinks that Zuckerberg might try to buy his idea.

I don’t know how anyone can take this seriously.

Fukkn' Dumbarse..It needs to be mounted to the front.

 

You can't lean back to get enough traction while climbing without falling over backwards. You gotta lean forwards. DUH!

Also, of course those plastic flapwheel paddles are going to break off with "torque", but really, pretty much any  force at all is going to break them off. With that design, if they were metal they'd bend.

To make this kind of maybe work it would need just a few slight modifications, like it would need to be like a snowmobile track or two, probably off to the sides, maybe up front, with some way to change direction, and a power source that runs off something more than delusions.

So basically, just completely different.

Let me know when someone invents a small drone that can carry me to the top and meet me at the bottom.
