Signal Snowboards has built a special tribute to Steve Jobs, complete with an iPad mounted in the nose of the board and a glowing LED Signal logo in the aluminum base (similar to Apple's iconic MacBook laptops). To test it, the California-based Signal crew brought the iShred to Colorado for some early-season laps at Loveland Ski Area and recruited Angry Snowboarder blogger Avran Lefeber to give it a proper review.
"This Every Third Thursday we celebrate Jobs in Snowboarding! No, not our employment, but the man who inspired and built products that almost every snowboarder we know loves and uses in their daily lives. Watch and see as our hardware needs updating a few times to get this snowboard built right!"
For good measure, check out some other recent ETT builds in the videos below, including the Halloween Slasher, the Duff McKagan Fender Snowboard Bass, the Lethal Weapon Paintball Board, and a Best-Of reel from last season.
