Different materials in different snowboards?
Just curious about the materials used in different snowboard brands.
For example, looking at my Raygun, the topside (and overall feel) of the board essentially looks and feels like a piece of soft wood with a glossy sheet over it. I can definitely tell that the topside and the rest of the board will damage easily.
But looking at a friend's GNU carbon credit and a couple of Burton boards I've used before, the those boards look/feel very tough and not easily destructible. Those boards don't bother with a glossy sheet. Instead, it feels and looks almost like those boards are made with a hard carbon fiber-like (just an exaggeration) material that is not soft and won't get chipped/dinged easily.
