Find out what core it has, Ride has been putting all kinds of shit in there cores the last few years. My current setup is an older DH, I think it has poprods but they are not within the cut. I split a 10/11 Fleetwood this year with some kind of carbon stringer BS, freeked me out when the blade started throwing sparks. IMO the board lost all of its stiffness, and rides like shit.
Wear long sleeves, a GOOD respirator, and glasses. I find Rides to be pretty toxic.
The core is the MOST IMPORTANT thing about a DIY. Find a good solid (full length if possible) wood core board and split it. You will get a much better, stronger and longer lasting board. Stay away from carbon fiber too! Try a NS, Venture, Unity, Lib Tech, Prior, Option, Etc...

Uffff! I only found out about this ride Decade the core is wood!! is my friends board, he lives abroad so we only checked now I didn't know the year of production so was hard to say. It is a board in link: http://www.evo.com/outlet/snowboards/ri ... -2007.aspx I rode this board once and was pretty nice and stiff board so hope fully will be a nice split.
