I asked Eric the other day if he could take some pictures of my snowboard. He also took some pictures of the sock they cut off of my right ankle.
Now, onto the snowboard, which Ski Patrol said was totally untouched.
No damage. But then I looked closer!
Let me explain why this is insane. All snowboards are sandwich structures, consisting of typically eight different materials:
- A Top Sheet (with a printed graphic)
- Fiber Glass
- Wood Core
- Base (with another graphic)
- Steel Inserts (for screwing in bindings)
- Resin (glue)
- Rubber Foil
- Carbon Fiber
Like I've said before, Ski Patrol has said they've never seen a broken snowboard from an accident.
I almost broke my snowboard!
Now, I won't be able to confirm it until we ship the board back to us, but I have a feeling that I did some serious damage!
