I'm thinking of picking this up to split:

Does anyone have any experience splitting a board with a 3D topsheet like this? The board is a 2007, and is a good deal - it has never been used. My only concern is that the inside edge will be a little odd because of the contours in the topsheet.

I split a Ride Timeless with a similar 3D topsheet. Only issue I had was filling in the 3d topsheet in two small spots, so that the touring brackets sit flush on the board. I took some thin rubber matting and basically made a a fitted piece that filled in the topsheet to make it flush. I didn't glue it on, just placed it underneath when mounting.

I'll take a picture when I get home. (Might have to bump this to remind me!)

BTW, Awesome boards. The timeless I split was a 164 of the same board I road on resort for years because I loved it so much! :thumpsup:

The farthest layer out has a smalllll piece under it, so its actually 2 pieces.
