Introduction: The Making of a Snowboard

This slideshow depicts the process of building a snowboard.  This is the second board I've built.  Both have been projects in applied composites courses taken at my local community college. There are several great resources on the Internet with "how to" methods that are well documented if you are interested in creating your own.  I must say that it's an amazingly fun & rewarding craft which I plan to continue.  Nothing beats riding your own board!  Enjoy!

Were are the great resources on the internet? How much did it cost? Thanks

hey could you make this rocker, and would you be able to make a splitboard?

I actually just had a rocker mould custom made for 160 CM boards! I haven't had a chance to pull any boards off it yet, though. As for split boards, I have yet to deal with them at all. Have you checked out www.codaboards.com? They make custom split boards. I've had topsheets printed through them. Both the customer service & quality was outstanding.

judging by the company's that make rocker snowboards, you probably want to use magne-traction, where you bend the edge by each foot and in the middle on both sides. because of the fact that rockers tend to not dig in as well. if you make one you should post an instructable!

hey could you make this without a press? and what other tools would you need?

how much did this cost, and if you do make an instructable, then you should include a list of materials.

These particular materials probably came in under a couple hundred or so, I'd guess. I hope to make a detailed, step-by-step instructable in the near future..

Great looking board. You should make an instuctable for it.

Thanks! I plan on making another board soon; maybe I will!
