Nov 9 2007Venomsnow Switchboard Is Questionable

switchboard-1.jpg

Venomsnow Switchboards look like they were made for handicapped people. And based on that guy in the picture, I'm even more convinced.

The Switchboard features two short woodcore boards joined end-to-end on a double hinge, with lightweight footstraps on top, twin skates underneath the rear board, and an aluminum steering bar on a pogo stick-like suspension unit mounted on the front board.

All the pictures available of this thing feature the goofiest bastards alive riding them. Good luck selling any, unless your target demographic is halfwit ass-clowns. Which it probably is.

Another dork catching some air after the jump, along with a demonstration video and a 70's porn-style commercial.

Crappy, lame, dumb and other such Americanisms. It's a bit rubbish isn't it?

You have slapped my lady on the ass and defiled her good name. We will fight to the death. But first we must sip tea in the temple to appease the gods.

Is he riding that thing in that new indoor ski hill in Dubai?

That was the slowest most boring chase scene ever.

i don't get the premise either. Do douche-bags from the 70s quantum leap to the present year in order to grab butts and race skiers with a retarded version of a scooter?

"Foreign" people/place and driving a stupid ford focus. I agree with #1.

What if you live in Montana and that's how you need to get to work?

This video is obviously authentic, except for the fact that the scenes with the 70s dudes and the square old-school skiers/boarders are clearly shot on different days, as can be seen by the snow on the trees, and the weather in the different shots. Way to go, Venomsnow.

wow.

my crap meter just exploded and shit all over the screen from the magnitude of crappiness that this piece of shit is.

I didn't think it was possible, but there it is.

I love the crazy guy at the top doing the like ROCK ON DUDE'S finger motion and the crazed look on his face like he just escaped from a mental institution.

huh??

It is pretty much a take off of The Beastie Boys' Sabotage music video

Um no never, resorts would not allow it, then again snow boarders weren't originally allowed on the runs. Anyways idk this whole concept seems iffy, oh and pretty sure ultimate rapidge would result in a race between a boarder and whatever the hell that is.
