quick question (semi-new guy)
i bought a K2 brigade 158 in october, last years model, got a sick deal.
shes got a 2000 extruded base and i had it waxed at sport check about 3 days before i went up to blue mountain.
this is my first snowboard, im not new to the sport, i just used to rent and not go very often, my last time snowboarding was about 3 years ago (im 17 now).
anyways, i knew what i was doing for the most part, i didnt fall too much hahahaha,
i rode for about 4-4.5 hours total
i went over some snow that was not looking very groomed a few times but didnt think much of it
today i got home and i look at my base, it seems that all the wax is gone (looked good when it was fresh from the store and before hitting the ''mountain'') and there are quite a few gashes in the base, like deep scratches, theres about 3-4 running about a 1.5-2+ feet lengthwise down the board and a few 5-6 inch long horizontal ones that are pretty deep
i was just wondering if this should happen, if its normal,will it affect my ride much, and if its not then how can i fix it/prevent it from happening again?
i rode before but never really payed much attention to the gear cuz it wasnt my personal gear.
sorry for the long post, and thanks in advance for the help!
