AcroPhile Basically to put HoboMaster's answer in much more general terms, going across long flat bits and skinning uphill.

HoboMaster Splitboards allow you to access any terrain, especially outside of resort boundaries. There is a lot of epic riding to be gotten outside of ski resorts... plus there's no lift ticket, or the other resort bullshit to deal with.

It's mostly for people who are skilled snowboarders who want to push the limits and experience new terrain. As you get to be a better snowboarder you will likely understand what I'm talking about.

RicSA This will sound dumb, but luckily I am a noob, why a splitboard? What is the reason for a splitboard?

Miguel Sanchez He made a post about using a varnish on the inside edge & how he forgot to put it in the video. Check it out here :Splitboarding Tips by Xavier | Timelinemissions

Anyway, cool look at how to split a board, I'm kicking around the idea myself, even though here on the east coast there is practically no need.

Building your own splitboard

Just watched this video from De Le Rue on building your own splitboard and me and my friend were asking ourselves about the waterproofing on the inside edge of each half of the board. De Le Rue doesn't talk about waterproofing the inside edge of each half of the board after sawing it in half. Wouldn't that be a problem when you get on the snow what with water getting into the deck and ruining it? Obviously, I have no experience with splitboards but thought you guys might have something to throw in's the link of the video:
