Making my own snowboard...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

any helpful tips will be much appreciated.

I am thinking of doing out of carbon fiber and poplar wood for the core and the edges out of p-tex and that metal edging.

i dont know where to get p-tex or the metal edging all i can find is the p-tex repair stick which i just learned from "racewax" that they are not a good substitute and are differnt from the real thing.

i am searching ThomasNet.com for these products and do not really know what to search for other than the word p-tex.

has anyone here made their own before?

what is that metal edging called?

and where can i buy p-tex?

I'd bet Kyle would have some good advice.  He made some really nice skis for some of our members and even did one pair for EpicSki.com
