Hi all! I'm new here and new to splitboarding for that matter. I was thinking of splitting an old GNU Carbon Hi-Beam that I have lying around (Not quite ready to split my Lib Skunk Ape). Does the name "Carbon Hi-Beam" imply that there's literally a carbon beam inside the core that will chew up my blade? Whats the deal?
Cool! Thanks for the tip. I contacted them today, they were very helpful. They said to go ahead cut it. Probably give it the chop next week. All the beta I got from these DIY threads sure does help... I think it will be pretty straight-forward. I'm thinking about shipping the deck to my buddy in CO as he offered to split it on a water-jet (so its perfectly straight). I may just do it myself though... not sure if I can wait to ship back and forth. I'm gonna order the Spark R&D baseplate too since I already have the Restraint bindings. I cant wait to charge the East-side soon!
I do have a nice table-saw I could use. However, I might have a buddy cut it on his water-jet. He guaranteed a perfect cut... just got to pay for shipping to CO. I was also thinking about having him split my Lib Tech Skunk-Ape. Probably just have Monk do that one though.

lege das brett übernacht in die kälte , und bringe es in einen warmen raum. fals es irgendwelche einlagen wie wabenstruktur oder balsaholz hat siehst du es an der schwindung , was sich deutlich auf der oberfläche abzeichnet .
take the board overnight in a cold room (outside) take it after 8 h in a warm room . you can see all lightwight inlays balsawood ore honeycomp . you can see it on the top of the board .
