Default Storage suggestions

I was wondering how you guys store your boards?
Like whenever I get back from aa trip I just lean it
against a wall. But its somewhat getting in the way.
I was going to put up some hooks on a wall,
and hang it up. But I dont want it to warp.
Any suggestions?

I usually leave it in the garage, shake off the water when the snow melts, then lay it under my bed

Depends, if its for a day or week or so during the season i will typically just throw it on the ground in my living room on the plastic sheath case it came in. If its long term storage over the non winter months i'd take the bindings off and box thema nd put the board back in the plastic sheathe, zip it up and throw it in the top shelf of my closet :/

During the off season, I usually loosen the bolts on the bindings and then throw the board and bindings into my snowboard bag. The bag then goes under my bed.

In the off-season it is best to put a storage wax on it so that the base doesn't dry out.

To do that just hot iron wax a thick layer and try to cover the edges and then just leave it. Then you can just scrape it off at the start of the next season. Keep it in a cool and dry spot.

I keep mine in a storage bag in the garage in the off-season. During winter, I keep it inside in the corner of my living room. I just like to keep it where I can see it because it kind of sates my addiction.

is it better to stand the board up against a wall durring the season or to lay it down?
and is it ok if you do lay it down, to lay it on a shelf?

During the off season i take my bindings off store them on the side and my board goes on a shelf on the wall. During the season it sits on the same shelf, just with the bindings on. Dry it off after i get home from the mountain of course, to keep rust off and up it goes.

Other than your house burning down and not being able to get the snowboard out of the hooks in time..you should be safe...
