We ride the things almost every day, but we never really get to see how there made and how much work goes into making them.
The first step is making the graphic, witch Blat wiped up for me real quick from his hotel. I chose to sublimate my board since I wanted to do it quick. Almost all the signal snowboards are sublimated and then hand painted
You put this stuff on it so it doesn't damage the top sheet
Then you cut some edges out and clamp
them Around the board with a little glue to hold them in place.
The next step is to cute a few sheets of glass out
I wanted my board to be a little stiffer, so I put a few strips of carbon in it
Then you bring all your materials over to the press
Here's the press
This is what holds it all together, the resin, it mixes from 2 different barrels to make a perfect mixture
After that it's pretty much just like making a sandwich with resin in between each layer. then you put it in the press, hit few switches and in 20 minutes take it out
After it cools down for I minute you cut it out. Tep cut it out for me so I wouldn't fuck it up or myself
Then you drill out the inserts
Grind that shit down and get it all nice and smooth
And then you got yourself a hand built snowboard
