Summer? Never heard of it
Nothing beats jibbing before Thanksgiving
The sun shines brightly on this month's episode of Every Third Thursday. Dave Lee and Signal Snowboards team up with Powerfilm Solar to create a solar-powered snowboard! At the Signal Snowboard factory the flexible solar panels are adhered to the snowboard top sheet and then wired into a converter mounted between the bindings. With the build complete, it's time to test out the voltage off the grid. Snowboarder Tyler Flanagan straps in and charges the Mammoth Mountain jumps while charging his electronics at the same time—this electrifying new board passes the test. It's a blast!

Signal Snowboards cap an epic 2012/13 winter with a good old fashioned derby race! Paying tribute to traditional pinewood derby races, Signal founder Dave Lee rounds up pinewood 2x4s as the foundation for these unique snowboards. The Signal crew then gets to work in the factory planing and gluing the 2x4s to create the base for each board. Custom graphics are added, then it's time to hit the road to Mammoth Mountain. Snowboarders Ian Thorley, Dylan Synnott, Joey Yorba and friends meet up with Dave to transform these boards into their own custom derby destroyers! With boards assembled the guys hit the hill to compete on their creations. You won't believe the speed these guys get on 2x4s! Goodbye winter—hello summer 2013!

But the pro surfer will also take you snowboarding and tanker surfing so it's a trade-off
After watching this, you'll want to move to the mountains. Immediately.
Teton Gravity Research has been making some of the best ski movies for a long time. The trailer for its newest video "Way of Life" promises to deliver more of the same. "Way of Life" attempts to capture the passion that skiers share around their life in the mountains. TGR pulled together a team of heavy hitters, including skiers Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Sammy Carlson, and Dash Longe, and traveled to some of the world's most challenging terrain in Wyoming, Austria, and British Columbia. As always, this promises to be one of the "must see" ski films of the year.
Because if he's snowboarding he's having fun
