Default End of season maintance?

Hey

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if there's anything I need to do for the snowboard before I put it away for the season. Anything such as waxing...

Thanks

Put a coat of wax on it, but don't scrape it off. If you still have the plastic sleeve that the board came in, store it in that. Keep it in your closet or under the bed until next season.

Why do you leave it unscraped. Sorry I'm new to boarding.

pretty much of the humidity in the summer time. You want the unscraped wax to cover up all the pores and prevent any humidity going in there and to prevent the base from swelling up.

also deburr, sharpen, and de-tune your edges. It will eliminate any potential rust spots. Also make sure when storing the board that you don't stuff on in or leaning against it as this can warp the board.

is it better to lay it flat, on its edge, or does it matter? i was thinking that if you lay it flat, gravity may cause it to flatten out slightly. i was planning on putting mine in my travel case to protect it and set it on the edge.
