I have 10 year old Palmer Snowboard. I never ride it and was told that it's the ideal board to split. Most people have never heard of Palmer Snowboards, but I remember their tech was a "honeybomb pattern" in the core that supposedly lightened the board. I tried reaching palmer to find out if the board was made of a solid core and I haven't been able to get anywhere. Is anyone familiar with Palmer's honeycomb? does anyone know if it's safe to split this board? I don't want to ruin the core and get water in it and waste the money on a split kit to find out several months later that it's damaged and I need to get a new board. I'd rather split this board than drop $1000 on a new setup, I'm just getting into splitting so I'd rather test the waters to see how often I can make it out first.

Just buy something used. There are posts of cheap options out there these days. I've heard you can't split it if it has the honeycomb core. Although, if it were me, I'd split it as an experiment. You never ride it anyway.

split it, you will figure out if you like touring before the DIY fails, then upgrade and keep it for a rock board.
