What Is the Best Way to Store Boards?

Its the end of the season for me, how should I store my board ? With or without bindings ? Vertical or horizontal matter any ? And I think I read about a xtra thick coating of wax, ironed but not scraped ? I live in a hot area but will be keeping all my gear indoors.

Care to share your methods?

I've read a few times that it's best to wax your board after your last time out for the saeson. But I'd like to know about whether or not you should take the bindings off etc...

I apply a coat of wax to the base without scraping it off. I loosen the binding bolts but leave the bindings attached to the board. The board goes into my board bag and the setup is left sitting in a corner on it's side.

i am dc5r on this one.. i would wax the board, however i would do it right and fully wax it... then loosen the binding a tad so they dont pull un the screws on the board and put the stress on the base. Then store them in a cool dry place... i bought some hangers today and plan on hanging all my boards on the wall to look at and taunt me until this winter

how big a deal is it if you don't loosen/take off your bindings...cause I tend to just post my boards up against the wall and the top of my bed frame

I'm with Venomous. Gonna throw a good coat of wax on the boards then I'm gonna hang them on my wall. They look awesome plus it will be a cool conversation piece when people come over.

I will probably take my bindings off and throw them back in the box and up into the closet, put my NS board in the plastic bag all NS boards come in and may hang it on the wall, not sure...

I tend to just keep my boots & binding boxes in my closet so i can put them away at the end of the season. That way nothing can get lost...

i dont think it is at all, i was just saying that is the "most ideal" way. i personally will not wax prob, and will not loosen the bindings either lol..im going to get another new board after next season anyways and i also feel like people treat boards as if they are flowers except they arent. is your board really going to break and die if you dont wax it and take the bindings off. no.

I usually just take the bindings off and store the board on a slight angle up against a wall with the topsheet facing the wall. I read somewhere that it's supposed to keep the natural curves of the board. For RC boards you would flip 180 with the base side against the wall.
Seems to work for me.
