Default What happens if I don't wax board for summer storage?

My 11/12 skate banana has been without storage wax all summer. And I'm curious if there'll be any permanent damage to it? i.e having worse float/speed even though i wax it before using it again?

Alright that's good to know. Thanks bro

Oh and to be clear, I used it last year and early this year, so it doesn't have factory wax. I did wax it once or twice though before using it. I didn't really board much that season.

I just hope it hasn't dried out too much during the summer until now. I won't be using it again til December.

yea it won't cause any problems, just letting the wax sit on the board all summer helps to seal it better. I've been on the Skate Banana and it is an awesome board so enjoy the season!

Even if it is super dry it won't be damaged, your base is not a creature that needs to be fed wax constantly, just give it a good wax before you ride

There was a 5 year period where I did no riding, and my board sat around with no wax. When I got back in to snowboarding I gave it a tune-up and it was good to go. Granted it was stored indoors.

Don't listen to these guys. It's going to spontaneously combust taking out your pets/children/wife/house or whatever you find near and dear to you. Seriously though, they're right, it's a snowboard, it'll be fine without some wax on it for a few months.

A big reason why waxing before storage is suggested is to leave a coat of wax on the edges. That protects them from humidity, etc. and the pitting that comes from rust. You may want to have a look at your edges.

Not true, right now that guy's board is stomping around the basement starved for wax, and it will bite his arm off unless he throws a cake of wax down the stairs to distract it before descending.
