VIDEO: This Adaptive Snowboard Rig With 5 Point Harness Is Sweet

By

Nick Santonastasso is an inspirational dude that is proof positive that if there is a will there is a way.  Nick wanted to snowboard and found the way thanks to a special adaptive setup with a 5 point harness designed by Danielle Lipsky. Very cool to see Nick out there shredding at Hood, I’d love to take some laps with the dude:

Shout out to project leader Danielle Lipsky at  Deviation Ski & Snowboard Works for designing and manufacturing this sweet one off and Gobundance.com for raising funds to make it happen. Hats off to everyone involved:

Three weeks ago today I was given the opportunity to present the adaptive snowboard I made for @nicksantonastasso on a stage in front of 150 influential members of @gobundance. I have never been one for public speaking, I have always had stage fright- but when you have an incredibly supportive group of people who believe in you and want to succeed at your back, the strength is undeniable. —— Thank you Nick, thank you Gobundance team and members, thank you @go_mccarthy @donhayley @ratmirrafikov @mishmcbride @mcbride1842 @jleetuck_productions @_permastoked @deviationworks @zbdsgn PC: @limelightsanantonio —— I aim to continue my work in the adaptive sports world and spread the word about adaptation and design. Limitations are just road signs that point to a better solution, and maybe we can start adapting the world to others rather than telling everyone we need to adapt to the world. I'm looking forward to hopefully present this project with the @lwdpdx community for @designweekpdx in April. Stay tuned! . . . . . . #adapt #adaptivedesign #adaptivesnowboard #adaptiveathlete #industrialdesign #productdesign #fabrication #innovation #design #lovewhatyoudo #familybonds #strongertogether
