Question Should I buy a bamboo snowboard?

I'm producing some exposed bamboo snowboards. Check out the pic for sample. Design will be changed. What do you guys think of it overall?

Each set of boards I produce can be made in any shape, design, etc. we want. Here's some of the specs.

1. flat camber bamboo snowboard.
2. Bamboo full sidewall
3. Laminate woodcore
4.Tri-axial fiberglass.
5. High-molecular sintered base.
6. Bamboo topsheet with anti-friction UV.

Let me know what your favorite build specs, tech, shape, camber, etc. that you guys like. If you have exceptional riding abilities and equipment to produce production quality video and product photos, you can be selected to receive a sample board at a reduced rate for testing.

Bamboo is a common material used in snowboards. Other than that, I have no idea what to tell you. I have no clue what board that is that you posted a picture of.

I'm actually thinking about manufacturing this board for myself. The design still isn't decided. I liked the unfinished look. If people are interested, I'll produce more of them with possibly different designs.

GTFO

If you don't know shit about snowboards, then you have no business trying to make them.

Yeah, I mean something like either one of those. Personally, I liked the exposed bamboo look. Thinking I would overlay some designs of a tiger claws and eyes or something for a far east zen look.

Dude, you're fucked. You don't know anything about how to actually manufacture snowboards and you're attempting to gain a foothold in an industry where very few already established manufacturers are actually experiencing growth. Even if you are successful, which I'd put the odds of right around zero, it'll likely be years before you see a profit. This isn't something you quit your day job to do.

If you have this strong of a desire to piss away money, I'll gladly email you my Paypal info and you can just send it to me. It'll save you a lot of time and heartache.

Ok son. I'm feeling kind today so I'll just say it, THIS is not the place to bring a pitch like this. Your gonna ripped to pieces. Pretty much every regular here is pretty hardcore and they aren't gonna give you a thing if you have nothing to offer.
