156 K2 Gyrator HD which I pickup for free. Thinking about DIY split a K2 Gyrator HD for a rock splitboard.

Does anyone know if K2 Gyrator HD is a foam core?

Anyone tried DIY splitting a K2 Gyrator HD or other old school board?

That's an 88/89 Gyrator, that model's second year. I recall there was an early Gnu / K2 collaboration that gave the early Gyrators Gnu-like off-piste shapes (rad!) and foam cores, but cap construction and odd-ball plastic sidewalls set them apart from Gnu construction.

I'd hang onto that deck as a retro pow shredder rather than split it, for two reasons. First, I'm not sure that board's foam construction would maintain enough integrity once split to ride well. Second, I'm sure it won't fare well as a rock board - too fragile.
