is an experiment in social art: connecting the global snowboard community through one board. Travis Rice is sending his favorite new board, the Lib Tech Speedodeeps, out into the world for all of us to ride! This project will document the mini-journey of each snowboarder this one board is passed to. How far this board can travel, how many riders it can reach, will be up to all of us snowboarders to determine! Be on the lookout for this board via the hashtag pic updates, it may be in your area! If you come across it, high five the previous captain, spin the tricks, snap the pics, and then pass it on. Anyone who receives the #passitonproject board has 3 days to ride it, then they must pass it on to another trusted individual.
