Did it back in the 90's hope you like breaking back spines on boots and losing support.

seems like you would want some 0 support boots like DC parks and a soft board for a skatey feel. Good luck turning on any hard pack on a stiff board. Why do you think hard boots are used in racing stiffness equals leverage for more powerful turns. It works in other sport because their surface is soft, ie water, skateboards have trucks with bushing that flex for you. I guess it would ok in some bottomless pow, but then why not noboard. Im thinking about a split noboard for this winter.

how are you going to skin up on a noboard? put bindings on it for the way up and take them off for the way down? what about the pad?

yeah just like that. Someone on splitboard.com was thinking about selling kits but i think i'll make my own. I figure if you do it right you could make it work for a regular split and a nosplit.

Technically if you have enough strength to support your ankle, then you wouldnt need highback or stiff boots. But, 99% of the people dont have that type of strength and will end up breaking their ankle trying...
