The Ralph Kucharek Build
Ralph came down to the world headquarters of PowderJet and got covered in sawdust crafting his very own ride. The highly talented and all around great human being, Shem Roose, put together this delightful video of Ralph ripping the most sacred terrain in New England. Enjoy. Much love to Bonfire for making it all possible.

WHY YOU CAN DO A PENTACORK AND NO ONE FUCKING CARES
Today, however, those at the frontier of pushing the technical boundaries of snowboarding are riding at such an insanely high level that it’s essentially unattainable to all but a select few. Kids need gym time, airbags, coaches and a sprinkling of disco dust to even get close to pulling off some of today’s stunts, and as a result such riding is becoming – at best – something akin to that lunatic shit the Nitro Circus lot do, or at worst, a turn-off. To blatantly contradict this article’s title; yes, if someone were to pentacork a bunch of people would watch it, discuss it, and most certainly would fucking care (no doubt caring so hard that they’d feel implied to tell the world that they’d prefer to see a slow, backside 180), but unlike watching Johan Olofsson tweak till the bindings creak way overhead or Nicolas Müller painting lines in Alaska, there’s little chance of it making any Average Joe want to go snowboarding.
