Now that I know some people get all heated on the topic, Id like to chime in and say that yes, I will be globbing on a shit ton of wax for storage this year. Itll give me a good chuckle when I walk by it in the garage this spring/summer.


oh and FUCK summer! Damnit.

I put on about half a bar of wax and then ironed it all over. It is now under my bed, awaiting next winter.

I just put a warm wax on last night so it will ride smoother today..... Kinda sticky yesterday. Hopefully abasin stays open until June so I won't need storage wax. Will hit the pnw in July..... Spend august and sept mtn biking then October back to riding my current board as a rock board.... New board strapped up in December.

Remove the bindings, stick it in a corner in the attic with all the other boards until the season begins. What I do check is all the binding strap screw's at the end of the season...

Why do you remove the bindings? Makes sense if you need space and can store them all together...

bingo !!! not really necessary, but it takes up a fraction of the space... I live in the city ( Oslo ) and we are a family of 3 that snowboard, slalom, and langrenn (cross country) I could use all the space thats available...

This was my first year snowboarding and my board will be up on a shelf in the garage with my kids boards until waxing before next season. I can't wait.

My quote came from a time my buddy came to the range with me one day. He'd never shot a gun before, and I had a bolt action rifle with only about 250 shots though it, so the action was a little stiff. He took his first shot, tried cycling the action and it kept binding on him. I think he was trying to be careful with the gun.

So I yell "It's a gun not a barbie doll!!!" and he proceeds to reef on the bolt, load the next round, and he's good to go!



From the same token, boards are built to be harped on. We strap our 175 lb selves to these things, then go ride them over ice, rocks, stumps, etc. How the board sits in between thrashings is the least of it's concern!
