Snapping a snowboard

I've seen some pretty sick stuff done to boards on videos, and abused mine many times though falls, etc. What does is actually take to snap a snowboard, or how'd you snap yours?

Having an 18 wheeler roll over your board and bindings after it flies off the roof of your car on the highway

I've seen maybe 3 boards in my life time snap to the point that they were in two pieces and those were fucking insane crashed. Cracking a board is a lot easier to do than people thing apply pressure in the right spot when landing weird and snap. I broke the tail on my Jibpan by landing on some uneven snow and stomping hard.

I saw one board snapped last year...

This kid had bought a used Rome something board at Zumiez(it was too sticker charged to actually see the short time i was there)...it didnt appear that he had crashed big as there was nothing around to really do that off of..i think he just hit a small wind made jump..

Either way he was not happy because the first two feet of his board was snapped off and only holding on by a bit...he was able to ride it down slowly though...

Sucks for that kid as i bet that was all his money to get it..

Capped snowboards are more likely to snap or edge blowout. But no one hardly makes them anymore. A crack and gouge in the fiberglass makes the board prone to breakage. I would say landing at a steep angle on the thinnest parts of the board, nose/tail.

i snap about one every couple of years, its usually right behind the back binding and is from landing hard on the tail. i think its a combo of being heavy and flexing the board severely enough that the binding acts as a fulcrum that ultimately snaps it. between that and rocks i destroy a board per year it seems.

in the past 2 or 3 season ive had 2 board completely snap through the core on my tip once and tail once, those were from landing tail heavy after corking a 7 and a 9 off a pretty big jump(prob about 60-70) also had 5 or 6 board crack from random awkward landings, luckily those were all under warranty.
