I beat it like Chris Brown
Snowboards are designed and constructed to be ridden hard. Whether it's drops off rocks, root/rock patches in tree runs, city jibs and wall rides, tree jibs and natural features, bonks and hits off features in a park, or face-melting eye watering straightlines. I don't hit any boards or gates waiting to load the lifts (in consideration of others), I dodge shallow patches best i can, and I'm meticulous when it comes to maintaining my base and edges.
But I bought my board with the intention to send it, and I proudly kick the shit out of it everytime. Every notch on my nose, scratch on my top sheet, and P-Tex patch on my base is a battle scar and a reward for a good day on my deck. No nose gaurd for me dude.
