I thought I've seen these somewhere online not sure but looking to protect then sides of the boards on the tips from rocks or anything. Any idea where I can get them online?

You don't need them. Unless you are doing something really wrong imo

I agree but I got the board from a buddy and I just am interested in them. Do you know where I can get them?

Its a surfboard company but they do make snowboard tip/tail protectors as well.

Snowboard nose guard in single or twin packs. Protect your board from dings and scratches.

Are you actually planning to ride your buddies deck over rocks and smash the tip and tail on purpose?

They usually put these on rental decks to prolong their life, not to mention people who rent treat the gear like shit.

I dont know, I think might be kinda useful. I cant count how many times while waiting for lift, people behind me with their skis just slam into my board b/c they werent paying attention. All my local mountains get extremely pack during the weekend.

I always laugh about that with my friend. You can tell who's rented their board when you see them hitting it against concrete to get the snow off of it.
