'Like A Marriage:' Men Ride 2-Person Snowboard
Everyone's heard of a bicycle built for two, but how about a two-person snowboard?
Butch Brady, of Jackson, built one. Recently he teamed up with another snowboarder, Eric Sweet, to make some two-man turns at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.
They did it for a television crew and for the Guinness Book of World Records.
Sweet said riding the tandem board took a bit of practice, but he soon got the hang of it. He said it's a lot like marriage -- riders split the work and give up half of the control.
The two-person snowboard is called the "XJ-13" and measures 9 feet, 7 inches (2.9 meters) long. Guinness says it may be the world's longest snowboard.
