This is what happens if you take skis, shorten them to about 1 foot in length, fatten them up threefold and place them sideways on your feet. The Dual Snowboards are exactly what they sound like: one snowboard for each foot. It sounds silly. But it might not be. If you watch the video I’ve embedded after the jump, you’ll see that there might be some advantages to this quirky twist on tossing yourself down snow covered slopes. For one, your feet aren’t tied together! Also, since walking forward digs the edge of the “boards” into the snow, you can walk back up hill (why would you want to??). Also… your feet aren’t tied together! Admittedly there’d be a learning curve here, but to someone who knows nothing of icy downhill suicide games, it looks like some sort of fun. No? Anyway, you can use your regular boarding boots with them.
Hit the jump to see what they look like in action.
Oh and a video of a Russian crow snowboarding, because why not?
