Could you stiffen it back up? Maybe yeah. But you're not "brining it back to life". You're also going to deaden the ride. It'll be stiffer in the planky way.

You might increase the thickness by 0.8mm. Thats less than a single thread on a m6x1.0 insert.
Free laminating will work but you wont get that clean finish

It's a matter of getting the resin and glass to stick to your topsheet. Also you might have to find longer insert bolts as you'll be raising your binding some.
You have no clue what it will do to the ride quality of your snowboard. Keep like it is and get a new one.

Eh it's not really a monetary issue, just trying to keep an older board alive.
ETM- would free lamming it not work? I was just thinking use a heavier weight volan cloth or a nicer heavy S glass at 10 oz

Doable but not easy.
You would need to sand off the top sheet as nothing will stick to it, add some glass at 45/45° and vacuum bag it

Adding fiberglass to snowboards
I'm an intermediate rider and am comfortable on some of the less gnarly blacks in North Carolina. My question however is the experience of people adding layers of fiberglass to stiffin a board up? I have a glissade crap 158 that I love but would like to increase the torsional stiffness.
I have shaped and glassed a couple surfboards and the principles aren't really any different. Basically just asking if anyone has tried this before!
