This is perfect! I may be far (VERY far) from being the best but the love of the sport is what keeps me going. Completely agree with the whole mentality point too. If you let yourself think you're going to eat shit off of that box, you will.
I HAVE to do this in my next apartment! Seeing this creative snowboard mount gave me the idea of taking the snowboard (or skateboard), putting a mounting bracket up with a board (snow or skate) on top to make a: book shelf.
