After ten long years of being dormant the Boardcrafter website has finally received an update! About time right? Those of you who knew the old website will find that the updated version is both modern, and much easier to navigate than the dinosaur we previously called home. Among the greatest improvements is the Forum, which now free of spammers and much easier to use.
My name is Justin Martin and I am Dante Martin’s younger brother. Dante is the original creator of Boardcrafter and has asked me to revamp the site. Like Dante I grew up in the small town of Naches Washington where I spent my winters skiing and summers doing other outdoor activities. I am now currently a junior at The University of Washington. If you have any questions about Board crafting or our products feel free to shoot us an email or post in the forum.

Boardcrafter Design™ snowboard design software is now available. It is finished one month ahead of schedule and allows snowboard and ski builders to easily design with CAD-like accuracy without CAD’s complexity.

• Outer board shape
• Core shape
• Tip spacers
• Nose/Tail/Camber profile
• Core Thickness Profile

The print function includes cut guidelines which allow users with a standard printer to accurately cut off page margins to create 1:1 scale templates.
