Default Do I really have the balls to split this thing?!

Alright, I've been looking to buy a board with the intention of splitting it. I found a *new* 165 Arbor Element on CL locally. I figured I'd go to look at it and it'd be scratched and dinged and what not. Nope. It's mint. It's gorgeous. My will to saw is wilting.

I was actually HOPING it would be kind of scuffed up from lift line banging and whatever. It would make the sawing less soul crushing.

Did you have high desires of splitting it yourself? If not then find a professional in your area and have them do it. Yourself? I might think twice if its your first attempt.

Yeah, definitely thinking about maybe hiring it out. I have quite a bit of wood working experience, but I've never split a board before. If I had access to a table saw, it'd be no big deal, but unfortunately I'd have to do it with a circular saw and a guide. Very doable, but not as fool proof as a table saw.

Oh man, I wasn't expecting an Arbor when I opened that link...

I recommend against it... Arbors are way to beautiful to split imo

Contact Venture snowboards. I don't know if they do outside jobs, but I know they make good splitboards and they are Colorado made.

My fiance has already threatened to kick me in the balls if I take a saw to this thing. Hell, she doesn't even wanting me riding it. She wants to make it into wall art.

I may look for something else to split. My willpower is failing me.

Trust your girl on this one haha

You can probably look at our craigslist man... I look at it from time to time and you can find long sticks for dirt dirt cheap. I've pondered it myself

Talking the Cartels on the Custom? That's my buddies stick and bindings if it's the same one. He needs to get off that stuff pretty bad if you're interested in splitting a couple year old Custom. It's a 58
