How to tell if your snowboard is new?
I am new to snowboarding and I have an elementry question that I hope some of you guys (or girls) can help me with. I recently bought a 'NEW' NS SL-R from eBay. When it arrived, I had a good look at it and I found there were imperfections on the base of the board. They were like scratches, but really superficial as i couldnt even feel it with my fingers. And they were not all over the base, which made me a bit confused if the board has been used or is brand new, but just a little banged up.
Now my question is, IF you mount bindings on the board, and used it (say once or twice) and you remove your bindings, will you already have made permanent marks on the topsheet? Specifically the round marks of the mount disc?
Thank you all
