Default the science behind the fun

oi, so, i've seen some stuff mentioned in a few threads regarding the actual creation / components / manufacturing of boards, and they've proved that i have (at best) moderate knowledge of the subject. I was wondering if anybody knows of any books / sites that have good info on design / manufacturing of snowboards. I figure that'd be a better way to learn than harass everybody with questions and incite arguments, as those threads seem to do.

any good links appreciated! thanks!

www.grafsnowboards.com think thats the site. You can download snocad and play with it and the forum there is really informative.

But if you have any questions feel free to P.M I have obscene amounts of info on what goes into a board.

There's a show out there called "How It's Made" that my friend has on his server. It might have been on Discovery Channel originally. There is an episode on there that shows how a snowboard is made as a manufacturing process. They really whip through the process though and don't get too detailed about the process, but it's a nice overview. If you poke around torrents you might be able to find it.
