..because they'll never know you're riding switch if you don't advertise
I am in the process of learning
snowboard backwards ("switch") and
spend a lot of time going slow or
unexpectedly catching an edge and
wiping out. Due to my unstable
disposition when riding switch, I
would like to be able to warn people
near me so that they give me a tad
The simple solution- an
reflective armband with "switch"
written on it. A goofy-footed
like me would put it on their right
arm, which would be the trailing
when they're riding switch. This
would make that fact obvious to
More advanced snowboarders might
still find the armband useful
then they would be able to let
everyone know that the fatass 360
they just spun was actually a fatass
*switch* 360. Of course, they'd be
the honor system when it comes to
putting the band on the correct arm.
Also, pros could be required to
the bands at competitions so that
judges and spectators have an
time determining whether a move
was done switch or not.

||// Why ... would someone want to snowboard backwards? //
||Because snowboarders have no capability for rational, analytical thought. If they did, they'd espouse a less antisocial alpine sport, like sniping, or triggering avalanches and rockslides.
