having had a bit more time to refine (but not by much) the iceboard, I’ve managed to take a fair bit of wood off of the design, it now weighs a few kilos less, still it has a considerable weight to it and I have reconsidered the design (see following post). I also managed to find some skate guards at the local secondhand store myrorna.se. They have lots of weird and wonderful stuff there and it’s well worth a look around their two floors of “stuff”
I also moved the shock springs to the widest settings to stiffen up the shocks as much as possible without changing the dampers.
Anyhow this is how the board looks now. Its not very refined, quite litterally rough around the edges, but the ice season is ending soon and time is of the essence!
