My true intentions were to let you know that we are building boards up here and see what you think. Thanks for the comments; we're going to keep building and if your ever up in the Seattle area, feel free to drop me a message and Id be happy to meet you up at the slopes to take the decks for a few turns.

Ill post more of the building progress as it develops.

-Thanks
Definitely agree. As a bystander to it, I think a better approach would have been to get to know people here a bit more. BA, although harsh and to the point (a lot less harsh than in the past) has a fair amount of experience. Is he always right? I don't think so, is anyone? Does he have a ton to contribute? For sure.

For me, I like to see a company that is always improving. I've honestly never built my own snowboard. But I do know that there is better processes out there. If you guys are producing decent boards with subpar methods. Why not experiment and produce great boards.

My 5cents.

BurtonAvenger If you know what you're doing you can build a press for under 500 bucks. Sometimes even less than that. It's not hard to build one and it's better than a vacuum bag. Vac bags are really only good for on the fly prototypes. If you watch Signal's Every Third Thursday they use this method on a few boards, the most notable being the underwater board they did in NZ.

linvillegorge I don't know a great deal about snowboard construction, but that vacuum bullshit looks janky as hell. A quick Google search says you can buy an entry level snowboard press for like $5000. Hell, I'm pretty sure ETM built his own.

If you're serious about building boards to try to sell and not just playing around in your garage in your free time, you should at least buy or build a real press.

Founded by the guy that owns The Levitation Project. This is his new thing to throw money into. Cambered snowboards, my guess old NS molds for something like the SL/Evo.

Well here's my thing on that.

10m sidecut is shallower than any board in the all mountain category I know of. These guys design boards for a living, they must know something. And your comments on the the 8m for your pow deck. Lets make this clear, POWDER SNOW. As in the physics dictating the way an object moves over/through it is more akin to fluids where traditional decks that need sidecuts is more based on solid surface. The sidecut reacts with the bent shape a board falls into while you're in a turn creating an arc. Pow physics are closer to surf physics than anything else.

An exaggerated example of my point.

This is built with a fucking vacuum bag. You could build one for $80 bucks at your local hardware store. The finish on these boards is going to be much like that website, ASS.

Manicmouse Scrap the logo and website for starters, looks like a school project from 1995.

I defer to the others on board construction

How about a personal video to introduce yourself and your brand? That goes a long way here...
