Going to Mt Hood this weekend for some riding, I want to take my new board out but Im kinda worried about all the dirt/crap in the snow thats up there, I would plan to wax it with some summer/spring wax but would I be doing any harm to a brand new base by riding on that stuff? Should I just ride my older board?
The glacier I rode in CO is probably a lot different than yours but ours is caked in dirt, ice, and slush through the summer. Just ride that board, it's gonna get fucked up anyway you didn't buy it because it looks pretty and if you did give it a rest. When you really ride a board you are going to beat the shit out of it.
Because I can use another board and not worry about it, but I realy want to try out my new board.
Trust me, if you just shelled out some coin on a brand new board the first thing Im sure you wouldnt want to do is fuck it up before the season even starts.
Ill just bring both boards and see how it is the first day and ride with my new one the second day if its not too bad
I guess I feel differently, I buy a board knowing Im going to hit everything on that mountain with it rain or shine. If it gets fucked up thats what happens. They aren't designed to be in good shape forever, I destroyed my Artifact in two months and I don't even ride park. Just ride the thing, that's what it's made for. Use Ptex if it gets bad.
