How Snowboards are Made

How many of you have ever wondered about how your board is made? I certainly have until I happened to read a story the other day on Transworld about it.

The process is really simple despite there being quite a bit of things that go in to the process; the edge, the core, the top sheet, and the base. I have always felt that before buying a board, the consumer should know exactly how it is constructed; whether it is a cap construction or a sand witch construction with side walls. What the core is made of and the quality of the base. Before you buy you should be familiar with these basic terms and know how they might affect the way you ride.

This is a really cool video and it shows the complete process of making a snowboard. Although it doesn’t go into a whole lot of detail about certain materials used, it does give the basics of what goes into the process.
