Next we are going to be talking about core
construction and the snowboards. Basically you want to think of a snowboard as a giant
sandwich, the bread being glass on top P-tex on the bottom and a core which is generally
wood. Wood has been tried and tested to be the most dependable core in a snowboard though
experiments have been made with foam and metal. Currently they run carbon and I beams through
the center of the board and also might put some reinforcements under the binding to dampen
the ride and now I am going to draw for you the way that a snow board is constructed.
You have your top layer which is a few layers, at least two of glass, a bottom layer or center
layer excuse me which is your core generally of wood and a bottom layer which is either
of centered or extruded P-tex and there is your sandwich, I mean snowboard.
