I just realized that I never posted here to show you guys the results from my splitboard design project.

Check them out - made from scratch:

There are a few other photos on my site at

Can't wait til the snow starts piling up. If you see my boards out there in the Sierra, say hi!

I was really hoping to make it to the bbq this weekend to meet some bay area splitters, but family stuff got in the way.

Nice! Great graphics. Cool photos from the link too. What are the specs? Is this a limited production run, or are we going to see more of these in the hills soon?

Balsa core? Was this a concept project? Bet it's nice and light though... :)

Those graphics do rock. Better than any production splits I've seen.
