Alright...widened the swallow a bit and estimated the rounded edges. Unless you see good reason not to, this will be the cut. Thanks for the help so far guys.

Now just 5 more months till I get to actually ride the damn thing!

Next up...sand down the epoxy. I got a plastic bond epoxy that will flex and is good down to -20 degrees or something like that. I can tell already that it will need some touch up, but so far pretty easy to work with. Cant report on durability until this coming winter.

Then...the topsheet will be going away in place of something...probably matte black. Just something simple, well done, and deadly looking. Will definitely be the only one on the hill.

Thanks! Im rather partial to it. She still needs a lot of work. Downside to an old used board. Still lots of camber left in it. But...the base needs some work. Theres a bolthole that was pushed through by use of too long a bolt. Need to grind that down. Also a small blown edge near the nose that I will have to repair.

Upside...I can cut it with little guilt and wont care how big a rock I encounter with it!

Its an old Never Summer. Its built like a fuckin tank. Wont take much to fix and anticipate it will still jam pow and groomers alike with aggression.

legit! you've inspired me to do this... great way to breath new life into an old board i think.

the piece you cut out looks like it would make a sick chopper seat. you should throw it on craigslist as a chopper seat cut from a snowboard for like 40-50 bucks.. i bet you'd sell it

edit: you're in socal fuck it charge 150 i'm sure you could sell that thing down there..
