Is it bad to store a board upright?

Just got a new 155 Evo-R, won't even get to ride it until next season. Right now it's in my closet, still in the plastic bag it was shipped in. But my question is, is it bad to have the board standing upright? Will it eventually warp like that? I mean, it's going to be sitting there for about 7 months or so.

I keep mine under my bed. Don't know if it would warp standing up, but it would bug the crap out of my thinking about it

i don't think i have ever seen a board laying down in a shop. Some boards sit there all year and have no problems. if you board warps standing up on a wall, i would give it back because it sure aint going to take the beating your going to give it.

haha when its at home my board is leaning against the wall 90% of the time. its not gonna do anything at all to the board. however you should strap your bindings in to prevent the ones on top from bending over backwards, which could possibly weaken the plastic over time. i think haha at least thats what i do.

Its fine to have it standing. Just make sure to not have stuff pressed up against it at weird angles as this can warp the board. The tip on the straps is a good one too.

If a board can't support it's own weight (the result being "warping") then it is definitely not going to support your weight (i.e. force) when you push it into a turn on the hill.

There's no bindings on it yet so that's not an issue.

I figured it'd be fine but just wanted to check. Wouldn't want to hurt it before I even get to ride it!

just leave ur board in a cool cozy area. (I leave mine in a closet) Boards don't get warped from standing upright.
=S
why would you ever think that?
