To everyone who has commented, thank's for the kind words.

I got Ski Japan to put my trip to Niseko together and they did a really good job. Saved me quite a few bucks and a lot of heartache in the process. Might be worth looking at those guys Argo.

Well mate if something does pan out for you then I'll be keeping tabs on it for sure. You've done a pretty fkn good job on those decks.

If you can make me one with a Bunya Pine top sheet to match my Cole Clark I'd be able to hook it down the hill while playing my guitar... what could possibly go wrong?

Hot. What are the black stringers made of?

I like the lighter timber too.

Stringers are carbon. This board has no top sheet so you are looking at the carbon and the core through the fibreglass.
I did it as a bit of an experiment really but I think it looks cool.
