Were talkin' ever, you pretty much have to get dropped off by a heli or cat, or your walkin'.

This isn't the kinda board you can have as your only board, that just won't work!!!
I'm not saying don't get it, you just better be aware of what you're in for!!!

It's thrice as hard as regular snowboarding, if not tenfold.
You have to be a really good snowboarder to successfully have fun, if not 90% of the time you'll ride for 20 feet or so & eat shit.
But if you can figure it out, it's pretty fuckin' amazing.

Here is my home made Swallow tail No-board with Rocker in the nose.
I haven't tried it yet with the added Rocker nose & swallowtail.

Where the original holes on the deck are I've got longer screws with the heads filed off.
That's the sweet spot, but with no bindings the sweet spot was farther back on the board where there isn't spikes for grip. It was rideable but you had to pull up the front end @ exactly the right time to make it over certain obstacles, if you pulled up too early it would get all squirrely, too late & over you went.

With the swallow-tail & Rocker, hopefully that will put me back on the sweet spot.
After riding one of these, the next time you get on a snowboard you won't believe how easy it is.

You can find these old shit pieces for free. The sporadic pre-drilled holes are perfect for No-boards.
If you like to build shit, you'll have a new toy in under an hour.
