“HERE YA’ GO BRO!”
“Cheers, aye” is my dubious reply. I look down at the contraption my old mate is lending for my first day splitboarding. It’s antique, and should be hanging above the fireplace, maybe even in it. Pre 90’s and cut long ways in two by hand, it’s precariously hooked together with a series of hooks, clamps and just to add flavour to the mix, T-bolts riding raw and exposed throughout the base material. Several metal ‘thingys’ are screwed through the topsheet straight into the core. I scratch my head for a bit, it’s a lot to take in… this is a splitboard!?
