I absolutely love snowboarding, but I'm really not very good. I can do a few tricks, but i live next to a ski resort in Utah and most of the people who i see go are crazy good. So i needed something to "show off" a little, and since i cant do many tricks, i figured why not build something really cool.
I tried probably 3 or 4 other designs before i did this one, and I've still got a few others id like to try, but this design worked pretty well.
The problem i had with my first designs was the wiring. I kept running the wiring on top of the board and covering it with silicone or metal strips but while snowboarding my feet would rip the wires off. So i finally decided to go ahead and try to fiberglass one of them
Step 1: Find a Cheap Board
I wouldn't recommend doing this to an expensive board, at least not on your first attempt. This mod will make the board a bit heavier, and a bit thicker, and if you mess up it could cause your board to split.
What you need:
A Cheap snowbaord ( I picked one up for $30)
Fiberglass & Resin
Drill & Bits
