Break boards, I break them ,and those who do and cry about it then get off the hill or build something better. Any metal board will break. consider it a testament to your ability to rip a turn. You baught a snowboard not a 100,000 porche... hang it on the wall, tell your kids about it, and move on. Break one and then buy a new one, its all a part of the game. If this upsets you than I could care less. If this makes you laugh than you know where I'm coming from and we should ride, tear some shizzle up and possible break a board or five... happy riding and happy threading.
