Poutanen, Poutanen, Poutanen; how quickly you forget. I agree, wax / no wax over the summer on the base is neither here nor there. But you are now out there in the dry, dry, dry west (yes, I am jealous ) where humidity is of no concern. Back here in the east, the humidity over the summer can pit your edges faster than a 7500 sintered. If you want to keep the rust at bay, ( good suggestion Donutz +1 ) you should do something to keep the rust monster at bay. Slap a messy, cover your edges, drip on the floor coat on your board and forget about it till the snow flies again.

This sounds like a bad idea... Any petroleum based product will work like a solvent on other petroleum based products... ie it will soften your topsheet if it gets on there, and could wreck your sidewalls and base, depending on what they're made of...

Yeah I used to store my Kemper in the basement in good 'ole Hamilton, or wherever I was at the time. That board is almost 20 years old and I'll show you pics. It's fine!

Maybe I've just been lucky but I think this is all WAY overkill...

Storage wax? Really? Why? Let it sit for a few months, then when the snow flies, grab it, wax it, ride it. Rinse and repeat as often as you feel necessary. It's not rocket science, it's snowboarding. The only way I'd worry is if you are storing it in a puddle. Of course, if you're doing that, you've got way more problems than worrying about your snowboard.

kick or throw the board into the corner of a room and go fishing/floating the river/riding motorcycles/camping/to hippie festivals all summer long.

its worked fine for the last 22 years or so.

i could never do that to my board, even if it 'doesn't matter'....bad karma

your board might just decide it don't like that poor treatment, wrap you and it around a tree next time out, for real

i've actually told some groms, that i see dragging the tail of their shit across the parking lot, up to the lift or whatever, 'hey, respect your gear'...they look at me like i'm frikkn nuts, but they carry it right after, heha, yeh, i'm that guy, LOL

In 15 years, I've never once waxed a board prior to putting it away for the summer. Does this mean that you *shouldn't*? No idea, but I've never had a problem with it.

THAT SAID, I dig waxing/tuning my boards, so I may actually do it just for shits this year.

And this season went by way too fast, dammit.
