What companies will split your snowboard?

I have 2 Burton T6's(a rare 07 and 09) both in pretty good shape, figured with the Alumifly core these would make good split boards.

Anyone know of companies that will split one of these boards and drill drill mountain hardware and maybe install edges?

Not sure if I even need the additional edges as I know people that have splits without additional edges installed.

Thanks a local company in Utah would be preferable

ask this question on splitboard.com.

for a burton (and really andy diy) best bet is to find a machine shop near you that will cut it with a waterjet for you for $40-80 and go from there. Burton boards in particular have a solid plate that contains all the inserts and cutting it with a circular or band saw usually gets pretty ugly.

on a diy i wouldn't bother with inside edges.

Cool thanks for the tip

Anyone have thoughts on using a board with the Alumifly core(Honeycomb shaped aluminum core) for splitting?

If I find a machine shop with a water cutter and get that done, who can do all the drilling required for the hardware?

Thanks again

splitboard.com is where are your definitive answers lie. i've only rode factory splits.

i'm guessing you will probably have issues with a core like that. if you cut it and have to fill all the holes in the inside edge with epoxy or something that would suck.

monk at down the middle splits is in park city - he did travis rice's splits for deeper... he's your best bet. google down the middle splits and call him up.. here's one he did - a T6

Splitboard.com Forums • View topic - monk151 T6 split?

sounds like it could be fragile, although this dude's has held up..

monk aint cheap tho

Yea I ran across that after posting , but dam 950$ for the Karakoram binding split job would just blow my budget out of the water but I'm 100% sold on that binding configuration.

not including skins or poles.

karakorums are cool, but you don't need them. the straps and buckles still suck. hell lots of people still run slider plates with regular bindings.

Sparks are great and you can find older generations for cheap, new stuff for discounts....

just stuff to think about...

Go ask Milo on 33rd how much they would charge. They might not do it since the aluminum core. Just go talk to them. They are super cool dudes there. I think they charge 200 or so + Voile hardware.

From what I remember, you want to split a wood core board. Anything else just turns out to be a disaster. PM Monk151 and ask him. He's the guy who has done customer splits for Travis Rice, Jeremy Jones, and others. I'm sure he'll give you the definitive answer if you can split that board or not. I'm pretty sure it's not though.

Sorry shred I didn't link over to it. If Monk did it and it worked, then I'd say he can split it. The general rule of thumb has been to split wood core boards.
