Default Extruded vs. sintered base

does extruded bases have ridges that are evenly spaces running along the length of the snowboard; and feels kind of rough?

Not necessarily. My K2 Brigade had them, Morrow didn't. It's up to the manufacturer.

So is this cordury base more expensive to manufacture? And is it more durable, needs less waxing than a flat base?

Do a search. Those questions and many more have been answered many times.

The sintered base on my DH is textured. In my opinion, it is more durable and needs less waxing than the non-textured base of my Custom.
