Question Snowboard has been stored in garage for 7 years...is it still rideable?

Hey guys,

I bought a snowboard back when I was in high school, around 2003. It's been stored in my garage for the past 7 years. I live in PA, do you think the board is still rideable or would it have been warped already? Any input will help.

In the seven years I would say it's been both flat and against the wall

Tune it, wax it, ride it. If it sucks then worry about getting something else.
