sintered/extruted base

i know what both are, and i know what both are supposed to offer apart from the other,
but what difference do they really make?
should i consider the base material when choosing a board or does it not really matter one way or another as long as you take care of the base.
ive been basically riding extruded and i had one sintered board but i cant compare them because i havent ridden both without a long time in between.

Sintered is a process of compression and heat over time which causes better bonds within the plastic, and more pores. Its more durable, and absorbs wax better.

Extruded is a melt and press process, quick cheap and easy

Well i guess they dont absorb wax as well but i dont really notice a difference. The board i rode lst year had an extruded base and with some wax it still flew like nobodys business sooooo yea.

Sintered bases are faster. Need to be waxed religously. More durable. More expensive.

Extruded bases technically never need waxed. They are a solid peice without pours. You can wax them for sure, but it will rub off with half a day's riding.

I have both and cannot tell a difference. Your jib sticks are pretty much all extruded.

I mildly disagree that wax rubs off after half a day on Extruded. Maybe on the east coast with all that crap snow/ice but...

You'll notice bases get whiter tinted when they get "dry". Don't let that happen to a sintered base, its bad for it. For extruded bases, I normally notice it after 5 or six days. 1 day right next to the edges, but it takes about 4-5 days for that white to migrate a couple inches in from the edge.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I was under the impression that sintered bases are less durable
