The Ultimate Surfboard Stringer Snowboard: ETT

Network A
Network A
ETT Season 5, episode 6: It feels like summer here in California and we’ve got surfing on our minds as we patiently wait for winter to return. In this episode Dave Lee and the Signal Snowboards crew play around with surfboard stringers—the stringer is the thin strip of wood that runs down the middle of the surfboard to increase the strength and rigidity of the foam board. Dave teams up with Appelcore Stringer to create laminated veneers to use in the construction of two snowboards—one a traditional core snowboard and the other a totally experimental veneer laminate board at half the thickness of a normal snowboard. The crew bails on the beach for the mountains to test out these crossover boards. Does this surf technology make for a great snowboard?
