I would like to know if it's possible to paint my board. What should I do to do it?
The answer is yes! I just buit a split board, but before I did that, I sanded down the top and painted the board. It looks so professional... I couldn''t believe I found out how from an online site. What you need to do is go to an auto shop such as autozone, Schucks, etc... and buy what ever color you need in Dupli paint, and then buy the gloss finish. I took some pinstriping and painted the base silver with the pin stripe stickers and painted black over that and now my board is black with silver pin stripes... oh I put the gloss on after I took the pin stripe stickers off. Case and point... you can!

I am working on a project in college and i have to produce 3 products, one of my products happens to be a snow board. Luckily its my secondary product so i only have to break in down into 2 components. I chose a wood core and a fiber glass shell, i know there are more components, but DOES ANYONE KNOW AN ESTIMATE OF HOW MUCH A WOOD CORE AND THE FIBER GLASS WOULD BE TO PURCHASE???

Hey guys, you all seem to be asking questions about making your own boads, i study composite engineering at uni so i thought i''d try and answer some common q''s. first off, unfortunately, in order to make a board of the same quality that you get from the leading manufacturers you need some pretty complex kit such as precision moulding tools and vacuum consolidation/ resin infusion stuff (without going into detail this is all to get stiffer/ higher performance lay-up). however i recon you could still make a half decent board the old skool way. in terms of materials your gunna need some UD glass and some ,- 90 glass matt plus a bit of surfboard (fine weave matt). You also need some polyester or epoxy resin, depending on your budget and weather you really care that much, (they actually have very similar tensile properties). As for the wood core I am not entirely sure but both hickory and maple are renowned for their flexural rigidity (hence skateboards and drum sticks) so that would be my best advice.
construction is almost explained in this article anyway and if you are not sure how to lay-up a laminate there are plenty of resorces online readily avaliable. In terms of material cost (from a bulk comsosit dealer) you are looking at a max of $40 however the steel inserts will have to be produced by hand and may take a 3-4 hours work.
following is (very basic) the lay-up schedual
fine weave surboard glass mat
,-45 glass mat
,-45 glass mat
fine weave surfboard glass mat
remember to keep your binding plates in place thoughout the lay-up process and remember to keep it quick and easy for yourself thelas thing you want is resin going off halfway through.
well this is a super rough guide and your gunna have to do some more research before you start but i hope this helps a little, cheers and keep riding guys ;)
so help full
i was just wondering, what exactly is the difference between epoxy and fiberglass in snowboards
where do you buy the metal edging
id like to know how I can purchase cores and edging in bulk does anyone know?
If you are using a foam core you have to make sure that the polyester resin will not melt it. This is not the case with epoxy. If you want to have a glossy surface on the glassing then you will have to add wax to the polyester resin epoxy resin doesn''t need wax. Polester is cheaper but more dangerous to work with
so ive got this burton dominant that i just cant bring myself to turf. The base or the p-tex i guess would be what its called is peeling off and i want to kno if theres any way to fix it. other then that the board is in mint shape.
i''m trying to build my own board. got some material from http://www.iplasticsupply.com/ and it''s coming out great. hopefully i can finish it before the season is over!
Hey guys, if ya want to build your own snowboard... Search on google, ya''ll find all the information you''ll need. But to build your snowboard ya need a press (4000kg), and some work and patience.
