I am trying to decide whether I should split my 1986 Burton Cruzer snowboard or not. I would like to get into splitboarding and thought this might be the way to go. I have done some research online and it does not seem these old boards have much financial value, maybe $150 at the most. If I split it I could bring it new life.

What does every think?

Mike

You should split a modern snowboard.

You're going to go through all the work and hardwear to split it and you'll end up with an old board. Even worse, you're going to spend hours skinning up slopes just to go down on an old board. If you wanna give it new life, flip it over and mount it to some 6x6 and turn it into a coffee table for ashing your j on.

I say go for it as long as you have period correct bindings.

So, it's not a Cruzer but close enough :doobie:

Me? No. I would not but what ever floats your boat. The one pictured belongs to a buddy and is supposedly one of the first DIYs done after Voile brought the kit to market. It is also a noodly piece of shit. I was just sharing the picture thinking someone out there might find it funny or interesting since you just don't see these things around anymore much less as splits.

It may be worth $30 but I don't think it's worth splitting.

Edit: Maybe you're referring to the Justy? Then yes. $30 is a great deal :mrgreen:
