At the dawn of the sport, snowboarding was a refuge for the punks and outcasts of the ski world. Snowboarders tore up the snow, they would lie down on runs in such numbers that the ski kills looked more like the beaches of Normandy than a winter wonderland. Of course, during its run as the fastest growing sport, snowboarding became more mainstream and while it still carries more of a punk ethos than its sibling, it’s hardly an outsider’s game.
That said, few sports continue to have the fingerprints of fashion and style on them more than snowboarding. And while it’s driven by a multi-million dollar clothing and accessory industry, there is still a huge premium placed on originality and personality in the sport. The folks at Revolution Snowboards have realized this and allow the customer to custom-make their snowboard using a variety of different board materials, shapes, and graphic images (including photos, but you should probably keep it tasteful). While a number of operations similar to this one exist, none appear to be as streamlined and user-friendly as Revolution’s. There is still plenty of time to get your order filled and delivered by ski season, so if you’re in the market, check out the site right here . Even if you’re not, it’s still pretty fun to design and save your own snowboards, knowing that success and a ski chalet are just around the corner.
