Lightbulb Things that WONT harm your board

Some noobs seem to be very concerned if the board doesn't look like on the first day.
Tried to collect some issues, that really aren't issues, and posting them will only yield in sarcastic mocking answers (which is actually funny, so I'm not sure if I really want you to not post them ). Might help to get an idea on what is a problem and what isn't worth noting.

Rust: If you don't store your board in a dry place, the edges might get superficial rust. This won't hurt your board. Edges won't be damaged. The rust will disappear after the first run. See for more info: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/tip...d-board-2.html

Scratches in the base: This is a superficial minor scratch. Don't worry, won't hurt the board, won't change it's ride quality.

Start a thread to ask what to do, if scratches blow the edge or base looks like this:

Don't worry, if you see blueprints of the inserts on your base. Nothing will happen. It's fine.


"Drying" of base: Wax or don't wax for summer storage, it'll make no difference. If not waxed, the base might look "dry" i.e. whitish like on the pic above. No prob: wax it, ride it, all is fine. Side note: some wax on the edges will prevent rust if stored in a humid place. More info/discussion on storing: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...ff-season.html. Also read the maintenance and waxing sticky.

Scratch/ding/chip on topsheet: Ignore it if it's superficial (i.e.not going to the core). Start a thread with a pic to ask what to do if your chip looks like that one over here: http://www.snowboardingforum.com/tip...ped-board.html

If you move your bindings, it might be, that you see imprints on the topsheet. Again, this won't do any harm to your board.



In general: Don't be overly worried. It's an object of utility and will show wear and tear. Your board is built to endure quite a lot. It's not a delicate hi-tech rocket. Basically, they're a piece of wood, encased by plastic n iron i.e. rather durable.

you'd think so, but sadly, most will not read this thread. They'll continue to ignore search function and continue to fan the flames.

Yap, was thinking the same while writing the post I'm sure the amusement will cuntinue. But some few might fall over the thread.


Maybe some of you have some more pics/comments with "real" damage and how you fixed it -if at all- and if/how it changed the performance (don't have access to the ladies with some serious damage at the moment).
