Board LIFE?

Any idea how long the average board should last?

My Burton Canyon is a 1999 or 2000 I believe, but not ridden much the last few years.

Thanks!

Anywhere between 50-100 days...on average. It also depends on how well you take care of your stuff. Obviously if the edges are ripped out on a board with a pile of core shots, it should probably be replaced, regardless of the amount of days. <--As an example.

I see a noticable drop in performance after 30 days or so. After 100 days, my board is pretty flat.

Well, maybe I should replace to play it safe. I do take care of my gear however.

How many days a season have you averaged over the past 7 years. If you're around 10 a season, it's probably done.
I take care of my gear too.


^^^That one has pretty much been taken care of...

I have a 2005 Anthem that is nearing its end. I board about once a week so I can get in 15 rides or so. I don't hit the park though, I'm strictly mountain.

I was getting 20-25 a year for a while but not much since our daughter was boarn. It may have about 70+ on it?

Eh, these are just guidelines. In the end, it is up to you to decide when to replace the board. My Ride Decade has about 80 days on it, and I'm shopping for another board even though it is in good condition and has been treated well.

I just remember how much more solid and stable my Canyon felt when I bought it...compared to my old board prior and that was onyl about 4 years old at the time. I went from a Floater to a Canyon. I plan on riding more in the coming years so I figure I can afford a new board this year - might as well do it.

I get over a 100 days a season and alternate between three snowboards. My oldest is a Gnu Stupid Cap from 1996 AND Drake F-60s from the same era. I am an agreesive rider and that old Gnu still has wicked pop!
