Default Do I need to get my board tuned-up?

Been off the slopes for about 3 years after snowboard for 15 years - duty called if you know what I mean.

At any rate, I'm looking to get back on the mountain this winter and get back into it. My board has been kepy in a bag for the past three years and it looks to be in better shape than I had expected, but I was wondering whether or not I would need a tune up before getting back out there.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Tom

clean the base then a fresh hotwax for sure. Inspect the edges to make sure that they didn't suffer from the bag getting tossed around over the past 3 years. I would expect that the edges will need a quick refresher tune. Also, I would tighten and inspect all the hardware on the bindings (I would just take off and remount everything to get a good look). Strap in on your carpet and jump around to see if anything gives or feels strange.

Glad to have you back in it
