Board construction - ever saw that?

This morning I cut an old board I snapped a couple years ago for my son's school presentation. He wanted to explain how it's built: wood core, fiberglass, sidewall, edges, etc.

I didn't know sidewall construction could mean that the board is ENTIRELY made of sidewall! (ABS)

No wood core what so ever. I knew about compacted foam cap-construction, but not about full-lenght ABS sidewall construction.

Anybody saw that before ?

Board is a 1997 Limited made in Austria.

Well, it's 1997 heavy.... I've seen worse.

Just weighed it.

7 lbs 2 oz -> 3.23 kg

Also weighed a 2013 LibTech 146 (to lazy to take bindings off of the other boards)

5 lb 5 oz -> 2.51 kg

It's a foam composite core. That time in snowboarding companies were experimenting with all sorts of crap. Cut a Palmer Honey Circle in half and it'll have a cardboard core.

The good news is that you could slam into an oil tanker and youd be good to go. Well, your board would.

Should have cut it lengthwise that way you could have turned it into a splitboard
