We would have never dreamed of seeing the words, glass and snowboard, next to each other. Signal Snowboards went to great lengths to make their fantasy come to reality. Now, you might be excused for thinking that this glass snowboard will break in half as soon as it is stepped on. Signal Snowboards founder, David Lee, visited a glass factory in Italy to cut and shape the transparent board, which was tempered to add strength and make it shatterproof. After a couple of days, the glass snowboard was complete and it was passed onto Girogio "Iannino" Morell for a test drive on the slopes of Tuscany. Unbelievably, the board takes a quite a beating and Morell describes it as one of the fastest boards he has ridden. Check out the full documentary video below.
