Stiff for carving performance, but i made it thinner between the bindings so you can flex it easy when you want to

Im not sure to be honest, it was one of my prototype boards and it does have a few small cosmetic defects none of which are detrimental to the ride, and it is on the other side of the world lol.
If you are still keen send me a pm and we can work out a deal that works for us both

This is the split sister board, it worked well but was a bit nose heavy while skinning due to the long nose and short/swallow tail. I did bag my first run on Hokkaido's Mt Shiribetsu on this board though so it will always be special to me.

So the answer is yes it would hold up to being split, especially if you moved the stance forward a bit to get the right balance when skinning
