It's hard to tell what's more impressive when linking up with Max Holzman - is it the fact he has an I-beam snowboard press in his garage, or that the wood MTN Local Snowboards he makes with it carve so well?

Max doesn't have many. And if he does, it might just be that he's not ripping them out as fast as they ride.
