Interview with Nathan, founder of Diditsnow.com

October 28th, 2010

Diditsnow.com is a new Snow report website, catering to the Australian and New Zealand market at the moment, with an interesting way of getting its updates.

I asked creator, Nathan Hawkins, a few questions on how it works and the reasons the industry needs it.

What’s it about? Why does the snow community need it?
Did it Snow is a unique site that aims to share the best and latest information on the current snow conditions. The unique bit is that in addition to official reports, the snow reports are also provided by other snow lovers, just like you! People can SMS a report to 0401 046 469 or email it to report@diditsnow.com and it will appear on the site immediately (just include the name of the resort somewhere in the message). Cool huh?!

MAKBOARD – The future is clear

October 6th, 2010

There is no doubt we are all guilty of playing our part in the wasteful society we live in. Perhaps in some aspects, it’s the only way our society can function, however for many, this disposable society presents the ultimate opportunity for innovative intervention.

Inventor and passionate Lake Tahoe boarder, Bob Candler, is one these inspirational people. Bob spent over 15 years mastering and revolutionizing waste recycling, to conceive the first snowboard to be made of 100 percent recycled and recyclable material.
After years of being frustrated by the unsustainable fabrication of fibreglass boards and not getting the ride experience, Bob took it upon himself to shake up the industry, and release the Makboard. Read more »
