Show snow who’s boss with a jet-powered snowboard

Feb. 25, 2021

In a recent video, YouTubers at Hacksmith Industries demonstrate how to construct a jet-powered snowboard.

I dread opening the curtains when I wake up. Each morning, the view is exactly the same. Snow. Sometimes I feel as though I’m living in a time loop, perpetually shoveling paths through the mountains of snow only to have my hard work destroyed by yet another storm. I miss the winters of my childhood, when snow was a welcomed friend, not an annoying houseguest who had overstayed his welcome. If you too are looking to regain your youthful memories of snow, (and you happen to have a few jet engines lying around) have I got the project for you. In a recent video, YouTubers at Hacksmith Industries demonstrate how to construct a jet-powered snowboard. Please don’t try this at home.
