Tons of snowboards are made in giant factories abroad by people who never snowboard. There are some fine exceptions, though, like my all-time favorite, Lib Technologies, based in Washington, and Signal Snowboards in California. Both offer boards handmade in the United States by snowboarders. Transworld Snowboarding is posting a 2-part series of videos featuring Signal owner/founder Dave Lee taking you on a tour of the factory and showing how they hand-make their snowboards. Check out Part 1:

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
