Every Third Thursday: A gorgeous snowboard made from just surfboard stringers

Despite the East Coast being pounded again and again with snow and cold this winter, it feels like summer over in California and the Signal Snowboards crew has got surfing on their minds. In this episode of Every Third Thursday, 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 Surfboard Stringers 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?
