    Hi
    I’m totally new to this forum, and I hope that I dont ask about something that is already answered in another thread.

    Right now I’m riding on a old Duotone split but I’m thinking about splitting an Atomic Banger.
    Does anyone of you know if this could be a suitable board to split?

    I’ve been riding it before and is happy with the performance, just hope that splitting it will be OK.

    It will soften after splitting.

    Just make sure it has a solid wood core. No foam, no hybrid, no honeycomb BS.

    Thanks for the information.
    I read this in the description about the core:
    The D4 sandwich construction keeps the flex poppy and transfers from edge to edge quickly.
    The core is an extra special blend of top secret wood and bio-engineered poplar with milled channels to reduce weight and increase pop.

    Do you think the “milled channels” can be a problem?

    Is that this years banger, with the purpleish topsheet?

    I looked at splitting that. The only thing i saw happening was that super soft nose getting even softer. I would just be weary when/if you get out on it not to put too much weight on the nose it in split mode.

    The milled channel should not matter, and if there is a channel right down the middle you could fill it with epoxy once its split. Not optimal, but nothing that would stop me either. I split a K2 Gyrator with honeycomb and just filled it with epoxy and it seemed fine…
