The purpose of the Snowboard Construction posts on this site is to provide information on exactly how I built snowboards at Happy Monkey Snowboards, Inc., so that others may learn from it. This will not be a comprehensive treatment of all the different ways to accomplish these tasks, but rather just the ways that I have personally done it that have yielded success. For alternatives to these techniques see SkiBuilders.com and GrafSnowboards.com, where they have collected detailed how-to’s on how they and others build boards, and have extensive and active forums with even more information on alternatives.
