In the new episode of Signal's wildly popular series 'Every Third Thursday', the gang build a board that can be used with trucks on an X Games skate mega ramp, as well as with bindings as a regular snowboard.
There's been a lot of chat recently about snowboarding's influence on mega ramp skateboarding, and Signal jumped into the deep end and set out to build a board that could ride both - with trucks and wheels or snowboard bindings.
After teaming up with small skate company Lithe, who use fiberglass composites to build their skate decks, Dave Lee and the Signal gang manage to construct a board that not only has binding inserts, but holes to attach skate trucks.
It's pretty rad to see how the snowboard sized skateboard handles on the mega ramp although we have to admit that we were a little disappointed that Mitchie Brusco didn't hit the big air kicker with it.
Nevertheless, this is another great episode of ETT!

The first pro tested combination skateboard/snowboard! In this episode Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew team up with Lithe, a small skateboard operation out of California that’s using composites in skateboards in a really unique and cool way. The goal of this build is to adapt Lithe’s unique carbon fiber building process to create a snowboard that can double as a skateboard. The board needs to be bomber enough for X Games pro skater Mitchie Brusco to skate on Woodward’s Megaramp, but with enough flex so that we can still turn on snow. We test this dual board out on Camp Woodward’s Megaramp and on the snowy park jumps at Woodward at Copper and it got two Mega thumbs up! What do you think of this do everything board?
