Sintered or Extruded- How to tell?

One of my friends bought a snowboard at a yard sale, and we're trying to figure out if the base is extruded or Sintered. I myself have never seen/ridden an extruded base, so i really dont know what differences to look for. what visual signes should i be looking for to tell if his board is sintered or extruded?

One dude on here said somthing about a bite test. If it gives a bit its sintered, if not, its extruded.

Extruded isnt very pourus if any, I believe. I havent looked at my artifact base in a while.

Sintered is pourus.

Usually extruded bases seem a lot slicker and shinier. Sintered bases feel dryer and a lot more porous.

^^ agreed. one other way is simply to wax it. if u have wax enough yourself you'll be able to tell right away how much wax the base is absorbing... etc

Every sintered base I've owned has a porous surface that kinda looks/feels like very fine grain wood or leather. It's easier to see/feel when it's low on wax
