The end supports are, I think, too narrow to hold a snowbard in a stable manner when it's lying horizontal, and their slots seem too short to hold a snowbard on its side. But:
- I have seen somewhere (Artech or Tognar) some snowboard platforms that you put on top of the end supports and hold in place with the clamps ordinarily used to hold a ski on its side. They create a wide platform so you can lie the snowboard horizontal on them. Without a center fice, you wouldn't have anything holding the board in place, other than friction with the supports. They have a grippy rubber surface for that purpose.
- Someone (probably SkiMan again) makes a set of two end supports (no center vice) designed for snowboards: they're much wider to start with, and have a deep slot to hold the snowboard on its side. You could synthesize a dual-purpose vice by combining a pair of these with a center vice. I don't know if the snowboard end supports would have any problems holding skis. They'd at least be a little awkward to work around.
