Freeking silly stupid if you ask me. Makes Splitboarding look like a gimick. like we need to have a shovel and saw built into the board. Thats not really going to help when needed in an emergency. Typical American cheese TV. get real people!

I think you're missing the point. This is about experimentation. Sure most of these experiments will fail but experimentation drives innovation. It took awhile for the Wright Brothers to get a working model.

I don't remember this one being a failure, but the whole point of ETT is to try think up of something and see if they can make it a reality. One of the best ones was the glass snowboard even though it was a failure. The snowboard/Surfboard was pretty fun, and the Iboard was hilarious. ETT is one of the coolest series out there. Made by snowboarders having fun making snowboards. Which seems to me is what it is all about.


Or maybe snowboarding is serious, I dunno... :scratch:

Yeah you guys are right. At least that show is entertaining and I must say those guys at Signal are talented craftsmen. i haven’t had TV in more than 10 years so i didn’t know what ETT was. Sorry if i offended anyone. I do like the idea of the old school snow surfer built into the design. It’s all for fun anyways and a lot of times progression comes from just trying different ideas, practical, silly or not..

I believe there are three seasons of ETT on Youtube. It was never on TV that I know of. Worth your while to check them out. They have done some really cool stuff.
