A friend has both and we may split one of them.Question is: They have a lot of carbon fiber in the deck, and the only carbon fiber composite board I ever split unloaded/rebounded after we cut it. The shape changed a little and the camber doubled or tripled! This was not a Nidecker, but had a carbon fiber topsheet similar to the Nidecker and is my only experience cut a carbon composite board.Please let me know if you guy have chopped one of these or have had a similar experience or advise.CheersPedro November 29, 2010 at 3:33 pm #632279 PedroDelfuego 758 Postshttp://www.nidecker.com/Megalight.html#Megalighthttp://www.nidecker.com/Legend.html#Legend November 30, 2010 at 4:23 pm #632280 PedroDelfuego 758 PostsBueller… Bueller…Anyone… Anyone…:scratch: January 11, 2012 at 7:33 am #632281 sekiller 10 Postsawakening the thread again. So has anyone done it yet? I’m also thinking about splitting one of these 2 January 12, 2012 at 4:49 am #632282 B-P 134 PostsI would assume it would be fine, they still use full wood cores, they just use carbon stringers and additives to the fiberglass. Shouldn’t cause any issues for a split. I can chat with the nidecker rep if you are still concerned though January 12, 2012 at 4:32 pm #632283 straightliner 36 PostsYeah i think a guy named Jeremy Jones did, then he put his name on the board and is now making a ton of $$$$. January 12, 2012 at 4:42 pm #632284 PedroDelfuego 758 PostsNidecker’s are made in Switzerland and have tons of carbon and carbon topsheets. Jones’ are made in Tunsia and have no carbon topsheet. I had a major issue splitting a board with lots-o-carbon and that why I started this thread…To quote Pulp Fiction:“ain’t the same fuckin’ ballpark, it ain’t the same league, it ain’t even the same fuckin’ sport.”Cheers bitches :drinks: January 8, 2013 at 5:11 pm #632285 Alex Latsch 5 PostsHi all,I did cut a Nidecker Legend 174 5 years back and it was a breeze… It has held up really well to, I actually still use it as a rock board… Here are my observations: Wood core except for tip and tail which are carbon fibre (no problem to cut) I sealed the edges with epoxyThis board was a really good ride. I would totally do it again. Also, I would not go the megalight route, the center cut outs would make the board weaker…Anyway if anybody wants pictures… feel free to ask Ride onAlex January 9, 2013 at 1:47 pm #632286 Matt Wood 328 PostsOne way to find out. Cut first, ask questions later. I wish there were a smile guy holding a saw to insert.

It is my third splitboard, but my first DIY. I decided to push it further and make it into a swallowtail. I was worried about the quality of the core, but the core is beautiful, made out of one splendid piece of wood. I will post pictures of it soon. 😀 Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total)You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
