Base grind vs ptex repair
 
Hey guys, even though the season has been over for more than 2 months (well for me) I have been thinking about snowboarding a lot. Last trip I did was to Red Lodge Montana to visit my aunt. They had been running out of snow for the weeks before I came, and the cover was getting a little thin. The second day I was there, however it started to dump, and they got 2 feet. I went out into the glades and was having a really good time, only having been in powder a few times, when my board hit a rock. The damage was not extreme, but the scratches I got were perpendicular to the edge, and I could feel the board trying to turn while I was flat basing.I have had a lot of scratches on the board over the season, but most of them have been parallel to the edge.

So my question is: with a medium-deep scratch that does not go away with waxing, is it better to get a base grind or p-tex it?

Yes.

Just take it to a good shop and ask. Or, it probably isn't effecting your ride so just leave it...

Ok, here is the best answer anyone could give you.

Check out this thread, http://www.snowboardingforum.com/eas...nd-tun-up.html

& Sign up.

Sportchek will send you 30 base grinds, full tune-ups, even core shots.

You could put it through the Pepsi challenge.
Do each of them separate just to see.

I've all ready signed up twice, I just need to make up some more email addresses.
