@kevy: they do have supports in the like every 20cm, just not on the farthest points outside...we figured we could save some weight without losing strength.

@biggy: it will be smokin once we have our heating blankets ready ;)

haha, i see. your whole self built press and cnc got me a little confused :D
but an angled picture of the edge bender would be cool. i guess youre just using bearings spaced with a thin washer, right?

have a look at the site of libtech snowboards. they use basaltex instead of fibreglass and some bean-derivate topsheets.
also nidecker snowboards uses recycled base materials for one of their models (the random).

Nidecker builds a snowboard with a base build from scrap material. its called the random...looks really cool and the color scheme is always different.

as for the heater...we'll be doing some tests on our new carbon heating blankets pretty soon. if everything works out, we'd have a cheap alternative to the silicone blankets.

well, i'll be getting mine from montuckymadman here on this forum.
he made the great offer to send out the remnants he has for free.
