Former professional snowboarder Tim Ostler‘s career was tragically cut short on December 29, 2000 when, on his last run, he sustained a broken neck and was paralyzed from the waist down. Having not been on a board since, David Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew took it upon themselves to craft a custom board that would allow Ostler to indulge his passion once again. Working in conjunction with Crankbrothers Mountain Bikes, the team set about crafting a snowboard/wheelchair hybrid that would allow the former great to carve up the powder from a seated position. Watch as the hybrid snowboard slowly takes shape, hitting a few bumps in the road on the way, before finally hitting the slopes with Ostler at the helm.
