Dave Lee: This is Every Third Thursday, a
chance for us to have some fun in our factory get creative with board design and materials
just get spontaneous come up with a theme and build it. Dave: This every third Thursday, can our boards
handle the pressure? Time to put air into the snowboards. Dave: First plan of action is to get this core built. We’re going to have to channel it out along
the sidewalls so that the inter tubes fit in. Jeb: I just finished programming the core,and
I’m going to send it down to Dustin so he can go cut it. Dustin: It’s got some crazy contours. Not
quite sure what’s going to happen so, lets run it and find out. Dustin: We pocketed out these areas to still
keep the flex in the nose and the tail, and then we also pocketed out the center so we
still have flex there too. Dave: So with these inter tubes, we cut them
in half because we didn’t want them to overlap from being in a full circle. They fit in
the channels perfectly. So these will inflate inside the channels
and actually change the flex of your core. Dave: I’m going to build these little blocks to go right over the top of this presta valve,
so I don’t crush it in the press. Dave: This foam was used to protect the nozzles
on the inter tubes, if they get crushed by our press, then we aren’t going to get air
into the tube. Jeb: We just cut some openings for these blocks
to fit in. Dave: It’s time to cut out the base on our
new knife cutter, and this new machine we have, basically drags a knife around any image
that we can come up with. Dave: Look at the pretty clouds
It’s really fast. It’s really precise. It’s one of the coolest new machines we
have here in the factory. Dave: I love it
Meg: Oh that’s adorable Meg: What we have here is the top sheet for
the air pressure board. I’m going to put a clear strip in there and you’ll be able
to see the inter tubes that are laid into the core. Meg: I’m going to run it through the laminator
and put down some protective tape to make sure the gloss stays glossy and it doesn’t
get all scratched up and gnarly. Dave: Probably the trickiest parts of this
build is keeping the inter tubes straight. Keeping everything flat as it goes into the
press. Dave: Board comes out of the press.
It looks good. We’re all excited and now it’s time
to put some air in this. Marc: How’s that flex feel?
Dave: It feels good. It’s… It’s like a normal flex
Dave: It’s working. We’re all excited Dave: OH!
Dave: I mean it’s totally stiff now. Dave: This board originally was all about
changing the flex, and we realize we’re getting different base structure too. Dave: It’s exciting to see that the inter
tubes worked and now we’re taking it up to Mt. High to give it to Spencer Link and
see how this thing works. Dave: We’re up here at Mt. High, Spencer Link. Nick Sibayan. We’re about to show
them the new Every Third Thursday. Dave: We have, your air ride. Dave: That is the raddest first run I’ve
seen on an Every Third Thursday in a while! Spencer: This thing is awesome! Dave: We just tried, different combinations.
First, just very little air, and Spencer can tell right away that it was a little base
high. Dave: You’re feeling like it’s gliding
across… Spencer: Yeah. It’s gliding across boxes,
rails, and everything. Spencer: Had enough edge to hit jumps. Dave: We put a little air in the board Spencer: Floating on clouds right now. Toes,
heels, centers not even touching. Spencer: Pumped up, it’s sticky on rails,
but you fly off jumps. Dave: Spencer was definitely noticing he was
getting more pop out of the board, so the same jumps that he was hitting a run before,
he’s now flying passed the landing. Marc: So do you like it better with air or
without air? Spencer: Without air.
Gotta leak it to tweak it bro. Spencer: Overall, probably one of the best
snowboards I’ve ever ridden. Not gonna lie. It was natural. Dave: Aww, I blew it out. Jeb: You just like to zoom in on my face don’t
you Marc? Dave: Oh. Disable that.
Jeb: That’s an awesome horn. Dave: That’s embarrassing.

    So you've basically just made the most adaptable board ever?
    Less air: Park
    More air: Powder and Piste.
    Should've shown more of that in the video, but damn thats a freaking good idea! Love ETT.

    I checked out Lib's version of aircore from ten or so years back. Very different from this. I wonder if Dave Lee's past with Lib influenced the idea at all. This is like the Reebok pump of snow.

    This would be a great idea for a progression board. Start off with 40psi for beginners making it easier to get on edge, then take out air as they progress. Then tweak as needed. One of my favorites!

    Messin' around with candy, lego & crazy ideas,
    So sit back relax & grab a few beers.
    We've seen snowboards that are surfboards, we've seen a board made out of wood,
    We've seen a golf & putt & we've seen things we never thought we should.
    It's all about lovin' the snow, meetin' bros & having fun,
    We all hate skiiers so it's lucky they made the board with the paint ball gun.
    So if you've never heard of it before listen up when I say,
    Hey guys we're Signal Snowboards & this is Every Third Thursday

    This is a potential new type of board. Not everyone can afford to buy multiple boards and often the variations come down to flex and length. I rip on a super stiff board and wish I had more flex once I start hitting rails and boxes. This could solve that issue for most ppl. who ride everything and don't want an "in-between board" that's okay for most riding. It's versatile and affordable, plus unique which is always cool. All they'd have to do is solve the issue of the base changing form so much.Β
