End of Season Clean Up

So sadly my season came to an end a couple weeks back and now I'm getting ready to put everything away for the summer. Just had a few questions about board maintenance. My last few trips to the hill i spent a good chunk of my time hitting this big pvc pipe and it seems to have left some marks on my board. I tried to just scrape them off as i could basically just pick at them and most of it would get off but I'm having trouble getting some of the marks off. See below for the pictures.

Also i noticed earlier in the year that my bindings had seemed to leave some marks on my board that won't go away. I was wondering if anyone else had this problem and could shed some light on what might be causing it and if it's repairable (I know it's purely cosmetic but i like to take pride in the way my equipment looks). I put some pictures below also.

I dont know if theres anything you can do about the binding plate rings, everyone gets those as far as i know. You may be able to clean them off with something but i dunno.

Just coat the base in wax, and leave it on until next season.

Most people will tell you that the marks don't matter and it's true, they're mostly just cosmetic damages. But clogging your bases pores with crud like that will slow down your board by like 2% of its potential speed(depending on how cruddy it is). You be the judge if that's important to you.

If you wanna get rid of the marks, just hot scrape it. (provided you have you own waxing setup) Take some cheap wax. Wax your board as you would normally do, but scrape it off immediately - as opposed to letting it dry. The warm wax will suck up all the crap out of the pores. You may need to repeat the process to get most of it out.

Voila! Brand new base!! Just put a heavy coat on it for the summer, this prevents the base from drying out.

For the rings on the topsheet, you're screwed. We all have it.


BTW, do you ride table mountain? I grew up in North Battleford.
