Default How long till a board softens up?

Bought a new board for playing around on groomers and stuff but it seems too stiff. I've only ridden it 2 days. How long will it take to maybe soften up?...and how much will it soften? (It has carbon, if that matters)

Depends on the board. Some soften up sooner than others. If you bought a stiff cambered plank, don't ever expect it to turn into a noodle.

thanks for a real answer.

I don't mind "comedians", but it would be better if you followed your jokes with something constructive

The other thing to consider is that the flex of the board will "break in" but don't expect a dramatic change in the flex. By the time the flex does dramatically change, your board is in all likelihood shot and the pop will be all but gone. Don't expect that to happen until you're north of 100+ full, hard days on that board.

i dont mind "questions" but it would be better if you gave us all the info... besides "how long does it take before a board softens up.

what kind of a board is it? some companies Pre-stress their boards. many variables here.

Burton would say never because they pre stress.

Carbon would also argue against it.

Maybe that jones flagship was a bad idea..
