heres a link to people putting rocker in their skis. SKIING RULZ

snowboards are all glass and wood, so heat is a must to keep any bend in the board. When epoxy is heated above the temperature it was cured at (150-180F in normal production) the epoxy will soften up. At this time it can be reshaped and then allowed to cure again. I am going to try with an older board first here when i find some time. I plan to uses boiling water as it is 212f and i would not have to worry about overheating the surface with a hair dryer or a heat gun. Just need to make my bending jig small enough to fit in the tub.
