The world is in the midst of a technological revolution, and snowboarding is no exception. From its humble roots where snowboarders would hand-shape jumps. to today’s cutting edge scene where pro riders require ever bigger, ever more perfectly sculpted features to try the latest tricks.
But with two sides to every argument, is this evolution really an improvement? Are the machines taking over?
