O and its a k2 board and k2 bindings

I have that exact board.

Mines been modified though

Originally, I filed off the heads of some screws, screwed one into every hole & used it as a No-board.

But....Having a centered stance without the ability to pull the front end up
Doesn't work worth shit.

While riding it, you find yourself moving your feet back to keep the nose afloat, until your no longer on the screws & you slip off.

So....

I had to cut a swallow tail into it.

& just to be on the safe side

I added some rocker to the nose

noob Just bombed whistler and it held together just fine. I am planning on getting a new board anyway, is the never summer evo good. I am intermediate rider. I found one for 250$. Is that a good deal?

CassMT eventually you will pay for this decision....

futurefunk Seems a pretty mickey mouse way to mount bindings. Wood screws may not be rated for the loads you get when falling. Get a structural engineer to check it...

speedjason strap in and bend the board see if they pop out. I would be pretty scared.
if it falls off on the lift and you hurt someone, you will regret not just get a new board.

ridinbend Eh, the old voile splitboard pucks were screwed on and worked alright. IMO, until you take a really bad spill, they will work for what your doing.

If I understand you right you have just drilled a few holes into the deck and filled them with jb weld to screw the binding bolts into right? they will rip out. jb weld is amazing but the stress on inserts is alot more than you might think.

good news is your board is old anyway so when they rip out halfway down your first run you can go buy a new one. hopefully you may be able to salvage your bolts but I wouldnt count on it if you screwed them on before the jb weld set.

paul Screw heads don't look wide enough. I'd be concerned with them not holding up and failing on you.
