Some of you may be familiar with the "best spring gash contest"?
Well I was the very lucky winner.
My prize: free labor on a Monk 151 custom splitty. :bananas: FNA

It's absolutely beautiful, I can't stop taking pictures of it! :drool:

This is my new favorite board. It is so much fun to ride and it's light.

Thanks Monk, I love the board, it's so nice. I would even say that it is nicer than my factory split. I think I've only ridden the Prior once since you split my Ride for me. :headbang:

^^^ It's true. She brings both boards to the trailhead and always leaves the Prior in the car. Then she takes pictures of her Monk board at every opportunity/scenic moment. I think she could be in love with her new board. Oh yeah... here's a pic of Buffy testing the work:

hey buffy - thanks for the thread and I'm really stoked to see you're tearing it up on the ride :headbang: great pics! I hope to make it out to the fest next year.

I really appreciate you being so patient and understanding - thank you!!

Slow .... Gang of splitboarder s - first think and than .....
to much ...
@ stranger lee + bigdood
you never build a board complet self ???? the secret is in the board - the core .... for DIY split and to much insert s is the problem ...






To much insert - in a board is a big point ....
A factory board has inserts in 2 lines .....4x 4
burton 3 lines ...

a DIY splitboard has much more inserts lines .
the insert 17-19mm Q a board in the waist 240 - 260
mm . in the worst case you have 9 and more insertlines a cross the
bord core ....... this is a hot break point .....
a orginal factory split is optim. of the core . position the hardcore wood stripes .... dont - thik a DIY splitboard had the same core .......

i Think this is my mine ..... a DIY board with so much inserts is a Swiss Cheas

answere ok :wink:

auf deutsch :



ein orginales brett hat meist 2 oder 3 inserts reihen die durch den kern verlaufen ....

bei einen DIY splitboard kann es zu 9 und mehr insertreihen geben die , wenn man so wie auf dem gezeigten board alle insert s bohrt .... ein insert hat einen Q von 17-19 mm
das schwächt ein board extrem .
ein board mit so vielen inserts ist ein schweizer käse...
die kerne von einen orginalen split sind auf die inserts ausgerichtet .

ich denk mal die antwort müßte ausreichend sein....

Burton ......

Mr. Burnt on,

I see now the light. Many inserts = swiss cheese.

Does this mean your silly 3-piece splitboards = String Cheese?

Nice pictures by the way. My apologies for the thread drift/jack.

@ stranger lee

we must go deper ... first lesson free for you , board construktion :mrgreen:


look at the uper belt - it is a glass , carbon , arramid mix ore some thing ....with epoxid resin a s Martix.
a orginal swowboard has belts in 0° -+ 30 ( 45 ° )
most 590 - 750g/m2
an split board had not the same belts , more stringer s in 0 ° it is importand ....
DIY :
a drill from the uper side for a insert diameter 17-19 mm is more bigger than a small hole and a skispax from the top in the core .... ( voile splitkit sliderpucks - skispax )
the best for DIY split is no Drill in the Base ( uperbelt )

youse the orginal 4x4 Stitch for the Pucks - angelpucks with apappter plats :thumpsup:

it is stupid your last mail :wink:
We talk chesse , insert s not 3 pice

you never youse an 3 pice board ..... talk only for things you now , test .... all other is stupid

Gruß Markus

Nice burton. Someone posts stoke on their new board and you turn it into a Monk-bash. Why not create your own Hate On Monk thread and do it there, you'll be the only one in it.

Maybe you should consider your own advice before commenting on Monk's boards.

Gotta agree with Stagger, that does sound pretty silly.

Saw l2r's board recently, it is flippin' sweet!
