BCRider is selling a Venture Storm R for $450 right now. It's missing the Voile kit and skins, but still comes with tip and chinese hooks. It's definitely been used but still is a pretty good deal.

I'd potentially be interested, I'm just not in a place right now to buy a split. With the wedding coming up in October, there's just not much fun money to be had right now.

not much fun money in the near (or distant) future, either, when you're married.

Finance wise, nothing will change. We've been together 10 years and lived together for 8. We keep all finances separate and we've talked about that and that will continue.

As long as we both have the money for our portion of the bills and the money we've agreed to set aside, then that's all that matters.

I just think joint accounts lead to problems.

Where are you guys coming up with $500 in materials for a diy splitter.
Old board - free
Diy volie kit $150 comes with all the hardware included
Tnuts and screws for the touring bracket $10, volie might include this now
West systems gflex epoxy $35

I guess if you need a new blade for your saw drill bits ect, $50

I found my blackdiamond skins for $75 on backcountry.com

We we built mine we added to the difficulty by giving the board some taper, just build a fence so your saw runs straight.

Built my own adjustable poles out of a old kiddy pair and adult pair.

Couldn't be more happy with my set up, seen a lot of people with full factory boards and sparks but they weren't having any more fun then me, up hill or down.

Diy let's you pick any kind of board, where the factory selection is still small expecialy when your on a budget.

You still have to get the board from somewhere. Somewhere it was paid for. For some people they are buying a deck just to split. I see your point.

Don't forget that skins are $120-$180 depending on the route you decide to go.

Yeah the board does have to come from somewhere for me it was an old board in the quiver that wasn't seeing much use. As for skins I got a pair of black diamond ski skins for $75 of backcountry.com at 120mm they are a tad narrow but came with tail clips and were long enough that after cutting them to length I was able to make apair of kick skins that work on my splitter and tele setup. My point is you can do it for cheap if you want and it still works great.
