Default Quick question about not using my board for 3-4 years

I bought a salomon board brand new back in 2009 and only got to use it once then it's been stored in my board bag until now.

I'm getting back into snowboarding and moving to the mountains this winter. Will my board be completely dried out and slow now? or can I just wax it and it will be good as new?

Cheers guys

Wax and go. Will it be as good as new? Maybe. You wouldn't be able to tell either way so don't think about it.

Have you looked at the edges? If it wasn't completely dried before being stuck in the bag, you'll have rust.

Your board misses the snow. Time to reunite them. It's ready to ride.

Also, you guys think a 154 board is too small for me now? I'm 5'9 and 175-180lbs. I used to ride pretty much everything. Mostly park and powder.

It will work fine. If you buy another I would go for 156-158. But the 154 will be a fun board. Maybe not as stable at high speeds.
