We did this little trip about 2 weeks ago but thought you guys might get a kick out of it anyway. My husband, “E”, has been thinking about building a noboard/splitboard for quite some time now and finally put his ideas into action. Here’s a short viddy of the first day out on the NoSplit. It ended up being pretty sick. [vimeo:377qz52z]http://www.vimeo.com/3282740[/vimeo:377qz52z] Disclaimer: The snow sucked. We ended up naming the area we rode “Lipstick on a Pig” cause that’s basically what it was. It looked nice, but it was still a pig underneath. Here are a couple of still shots of the old lady riding. Sorry, no stills of the NoSplit! February 25, 2009 at 7:37 am #614607 bcrider 4150 Posts Good stuff BG and E! 8) Speedy Maniac was thinking of doing the same. Was that just straight velcro for the binding straps? February 25, 2009 at 4:09 pm #614608 arild 60 Posts That looks plenty sweet! True pow surfing! :rock: :thatrocks: February 25, 2009 at 10:31 pm #614609 kjkrow 353 Posts Ha ha … the nosplit is cool. Those nosplit bindings are rad too, minimalist straps and that’s it. Looks like fun. February 26, 2009 at 5:45 pm #614610 gregm 79 Posts that’s. totally. rad. February 26, 2009 at 5:54 pm #614611 InTheMountains 216 Posts How ’bout a couple of photo’s of the no-split. I wanna see that device! February 27, 2009 at 2:57 pm #614612 boardergirl 85 Posts Sorry for the slow reply. My internet connection was down for a while. Anyway, Chris… that there was strait velcro. I actually put my woman skills to work and sewed up some nice velcro/webbing straps and presto… we were in business. They’re really lightweight and seem to work well. Don’t really need anything to beefy ’cause there’s no way you’ll be NoSplitting on anything less than powder. I’ll try to get some pics up later today. February 27, 2009 at 3:55 pm #614613 TEX 2486 Posts So is “E’ using a strap to hold onto as he starts out? If he is does he just let it go when he gets speed? February 27, 2009 at 6:22 pm #614614 boardergirl 85 Posts Yup. It’s sort of an elastic/webbing strap so when you pull it tight it’s solid, but when you let go it snap back to your board and out of the way. Alot of the noboard guys around here ride holding on to the strap, but I think that makes it a little bit easier and a little less of the surfy feeling. E usually just likes to use it to get going and then drops it so he can surf the earth!

Finally getting around to getting a couple of pics up of the NoSplit. We went as lightweight as possible… i.e. velcro straps and aluminum heelcups. Check it out and see what you think. Tex, thanks for the invite! I wish we were headed out to Cali and we’d for sure take you up on a surf trip… but, the little boardergirl seems to keep us alot closer to home than we used to stay. The complete NoSplit setup with matching bungee strap! The NoSplit in tour mode. Attaching bindings. The puck/slider system to hold things tight. March 1, 2009 at 10:09 pm #614617 kjkrow 353 Posts That’s awesome. What makes up the pads for your feet in surf mode? Neoprene or foam? March 1, 2009 at 10:15 pm #614618 schwalbster 321 Posts Man, Noboarding. Rockerboards, all kinds of crazy stuff going on! I have to say this looks really fun. Can’t go any lighter than that! Cool Video! After much research, experimentation and consideration, I have decided adulthood is not for me. Thank you for the opportunity.
