Snowboard Teaching Device with Real Time Rider Feedback

Having a proper weight distribution is vital when learning to snowboard. To measure the weight distribution, we are placing load cells in each binding of the snowboard. If the rider has proper weight distribution, a LED in a telescoping arm the rider can hold onto to help keep enough weight in their front foot will light up green. If they don't have enough weight on their front foot, it lights up red.
