It’s finally time for another one of Signal Snowboards odd and genius inventions. This thursday, they finally did the inevitable step and combined music and snowboarding. But by that we don’t mean adding music to an edit but mounting actual turntables on a snowboard!
Have you ever been sitting in the parking lot with your snowboard, felt the sudden urge to produce some music but left your turntables at home AGAIN? Well, you’ll never have that feeling of something very important missing on your snowboard again, because Dave Lee managed to bring together your two loves – music and snowboarding.
To pimp it out to the max, they has artist MadSteez make some custom board graphics. Also very convenient: scratches on this board are a good thing!
Are you ready? I said, are you READY for this pioneering turntable snowboard?! In true hip hop fashion, Signal Snowboards put together the ultimate collaboration teaming up with one of the greatest DJs in history and contributing member of the Beastie Boys, Mix Master Mike, who not only provided direction on this build but also an original track for the episode. Custom board graphics come courtesy of artist MadSteez, and the clutch components including the turntable and mixer come courtesy of leading DJ equipment manufacturer Vestax. From the ultimate collab comes the ultimate DJ board complete with a functioning turntable and mixer. We tested it twice—the DJ capabilities were proven at the Vestax Store grand opening on Melrose street in downtown Los Angeles, and ride-ability was confirmed on the slopes of Bear Mountain, California jamming to Mix Master Mike’s custom track. Aw yeah!
