British snowboarder Jamie Barrow was recently in St. Moritz, Switzerland, testing out some new jet engines for snowboarding. Unnecessary? Maybe. Fun? Definitely.

Barrow topped out at over 80 mph on a flat lake with the help of the jet engines. Still, that's small beans for him, since he currently holds the world record for fastest speed on a snowboard at 94 mph.
