A lot of the bells and whistles you see in consumer skis and snowboards have been put there in order to achieve something that can often be achieved in a much simpler way, but they use it anyway because it's easier for marketing. Just keep that in mind when looking at websites of big brands.

You can easily build a softer board by only adjusting the core thickness and using different types of reinforcement (e.g. only using 0/90° biaxial fiberglass to get a torsionally soft board). Chances are, the flex of your first board will not be spot on what you wanted. If you keep the construction simple, it is much easier to find out which parameters to change in order to get closer to your desired flex.
Good tips. I'll keep them in mind when it come to actually starting to making this thing.

Hey Buddy, glad to see you're still around :D

How's life?
You don't even have a legit signature, nothing to reveal who you are and what you do...

Best of luck to you. (uneva)
