Default Summer storage

Hey all

Well the season is done for me and I am wondering how to store my board. At the moment it has a fresh hot wax and has been scraped. Is this good for summer storage or should I give it a hot scrape and then wax it and leave the wax unscraped?

Just give it a hot wax with the same wax you regularly use, and don't bother scrapin till next use!!!!!

Or if the base is dirty, give it a good clean and dry before you rewax it!!!!!

Flat on the ground with the base up. Stack your winter tires on top in the center to preserve your camber. You can rub baby oil on the tips every other month, but to me that is a bit excessive.

They're joking.

Put/lay/position/array/hang
upright/tail up/nose up/flat
boardbag/shelf/rack/corner
with bindings /without bindings
freshly waxed / not waxed
cellar/shed/bed/garage/whereeverryoufindspace

Make a meaningful sentence out of the words and it'll be fine for your board

I usually remove the bindings at the end of the season for storage and to check for shit like this...

Nasty. Always wise to check, especially if someone was messing with your bindings like in the Shredders movie.
