    Short boards are fun, and with the little snow we have had in Tahoe, I needed to make a shorter split for the mixed conditions Iv been finding. I’v had around 5 days on this board so far and like Mcdonalds “Im luvin it”

    Its a burton so ya you gotta cut through the middle inserts, but hey finding the middle is as easy as eyeballin the insert

    156 burton dragon

    Gotta poxy up those inserts cause p-tex just pulls out

    all done :clap:

    :scratch: Never thought this would happen but splitboarding has turned me into a cross country skiier 😆

    Did you DIY that bike also? looks fun aside from the taint nudging seat angle. I like the old cranks and custom fenders?

    yeah Huck! Im all about restoring garage sale bikes, Right now I got way too many at my place. I live practically on the bike path so riding a bike anywhere in south lake on nice days is the only way to go.

    Here is my burton splitty from the start of last nights full moon split mission!

    Nice work! If you have spare bikes one should be set up for snow riding. Wicked fun! Home made studded tires with sheet metal screws rock.

    That’s it. As soon as those Edison bindings come out, I’m doin’ a DIY split on my Rossi Mini. 121 centimeters of tree swerving, narrow chute rocking, and corn snow eating goodness.
    Anyone know if you can get aftermarket binding inserts? I wanna move my rear foot back an inch.

    Action sports technologies has nice inserts for 50 cents each. You can get inserts at most hardware stores but not the same as the real ones. A 121cm board? that’s insane! Gotta be at least 133cm :rock:

    ^^^ That board looks sweet Huck, A short fatty aka chode 😆 That drop is attained from hiking out on the North Side of Kit Carson Pass thats all the info though 😀
    And Hans, Its super easy to install extra inserts, the inserts are like 10 cents each and the epoxy is cheap, but the bit will cost the most. And yea that Edison from sparks look rad, epecially for the DIY splitter

    I call it a chub cuz fish was taken. The hard part about tiny boards is getting all the deck gear to fit without one thing interfering with another. You’re locked into where the climbing bracket ends up and have to compromise around that.
    This 155 cm has the toe of your boot touch the puck. Lucky it hasn’t bothered me.

    Nels in south lake, The local hardware store they have a huge selection. But now come to think about it maybe the inserts were 30 cents and the screws were 10 cents :scratch: Damn wake and :doobie:
