Do-It-Yourself Splitboard?

Lack of Snow driving you crazy? Have a Snowboard? Here's a wild way to kill some time: build your own splitboard.

This month's Backcountry.com Newsletter has an article on creating your own Splitboard from scratch.

That's right—you get to take your old beater Snowboard, saw it in half and (hopefully) end up with a fully-functioning splitboard.

Here at SD.com, we have a motto: anything this crazy has to be good!

Whether or not this actually works, it's bound to release a lot of no-snow frustrations. And who knows...windsurfers used to sacrifice old boards to the gods when the wind wasn't blowing. Maybe cutting up an old board will get the snow to start falling.

If you do try this, let me know how it works out. :)
