THE ELAN SNOWBOARDS BOARD CONSTRUCTION VIDEO
For the last 16 years, we've been putting a whole lot of love into the
design and production of our snowboards in the Elan Snowboard factory
in Fürnitz, Austria, where cutting edge machinery, pioneering technology
and a solid stack of handiwork go into creating industry best boards for
the progressive rider.
And since such next
generation development should not be kept under wraps, we accompanied
international Elan Team Rider, Anssi Manninen, on a little visit to the
Elan Snowboards Factory to shoot him putting his solid input into the
board production. Check out his masterpiece at www.elansnowboards.com.
Anssi takes us on
a journey through the tricky business of creating snowboards in six steps.
Included are the manufacturing of wood cores, production of the top sheet
and base as well as the fine arts of lay-up, grinding and finishing. Step
by step he explains how the Artec and Elan collections are conjured up
in one of the most up-to-the-minute production processes in the world.
And once you've witnessed how much loving handiwork goes into it, you'll
relish your board even more.
