Yes ted, a 70's dance trend is comparable to a 80 year old aesthetic.

I don't take anything serious. I bolted brass to a snowboard, come on!

And it's not a hobby. It's my one and only Steampunk project. Snowboarding, on the other hand, is my hobby.

Why are you so threatened by Steampunk? If people get off on gears, steam, brass and leather... so what?

You know a trend is breaching into the mainstream when people will actually spend their time and energy criticizing it and expressing hatred of the trend instead of just ignoring it and moving on to something worth investing energy in. I often spent energy doing the same thing when I was young an immature.

The term itself is from the 80s but the aesthetic dates back to the 30s. I didn't expect my project to get posted across so many blogs - I definitely didn't ask for it.

Folks can rag on it as much as they like, I really don't mind. While you're sitting there hating it, I got a lot of laughs, attention, compliments, and fun out of it. It was 4 days evenings of work followed by a full day of play - and I really enjoyed it. Sorry if my happiness makes you jealous! Maybe stop complaining on the Internet and go do something fun??? =D

Gee... thanks guys... you're a stand up bunch of wonderful folks.

@Jonna - You're right, snowboards don't have engines. You deserve a cookie.

@Ted - I think there's a T at the beginning, d at the end, and some vowel in the middle.

The intent of the gadgetry has nothing to do with powering a snowboard with steam. It was actually to capitalize on the biggest natural resource available while snowboarding - the wind. The sails draw in air and force it into the rear chamber creating enough flow to... well, I don't know yet. I only put 4 evenings into it thus far.

We built the board for a slopeside costume party.

@vonskippy If you're familiar with Google Trends, you can pull up the trends on "steampunk". It's a groth trend somewhere around a 30 degree angle. Last time I checked, there's no sign of of the trend leveling out.

And, of course, to think that you or anyone else in the comment section here actually amount to enough influence to impact the trend is just another sign of your over inflated perspective of self importance.

Have a great day...
