Default Time to make it last.

Since, I'm new to all of this, I was wandering if there was anything to do in order to make you gear last as long as possible, that goes for everything from bindings, to boots, to your board. I understand that general wear and tear will happen eventually, and along side keeping everything well maintained, if there is anything else you can do specifically for your board, alongside waxing, getting it tuned in your local shop, and keeping it stored in the right place, and your boots, any ways to keep them from getting blown out or incredibly soft and flexible. I wear soft boots, Morrow "Rails" actually, and I've heard mixed reviews about them, but they were the only thing in my size that I had the luxury of trying on (I don't trust ordering boots from the internet since I can't go in and get them fitted.)


Also, thanks in advance for taking the time to read and for any answers you might have.

Keep your stuff in a cool dry place in the summer. You can always ride the stuff easier. Obviously if you don't take your board around rocks and such it will last longer.

Make sure you keep your boots dry. Take the liner out when you're done with your day and dry it indoors. It may develop mold, or at the very least an odd smell, if it stays wet too long.

Thanks, I'll keep t hat in-mind when I go out, in the mean-time, I'll try to look for reliable ways to keep the boots rigid, since that's what I'm worried about the most.

Be sure to always wipe your board and bindings down. Always check your screws, and get your board sharpened and waxed about every two trips
