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.
