Snowboard usage

How long do people usually keep there boards around here? I wax and resurface 3 times (beginning of each season) so I ride the same board for about 4 years (1 year new + 3 years maintenanced). Just wondering if i "overhaul" my boards compared to the average rider or if im going through boards faster than most.

it depends on what you use it for. If you use your board for Freeriding or all mountain riding the board can last for several years if you maintain the base and edges properly and often. If you use your board for park/freestyle it's going to last maybe one season max. If you use your board in the street it's going to get destroyed really fast.

myself I have two, one for freeriding and one for freestyle/park. I don't do much park these days (my old bones cant handle it) But i've had my freeriding board for 3 seasons years now

thats the most ludicrous thing i've ever heard..a board thats ridden in the park definitely lasts longer than a season..i don't know what you've been doing in the park..grinding diamond spiked rails and going off gravel booters?

I don't ride my board in the park, but mine typically last 4 years. Not that they COULDN'T last longer, but that's when I usually buy a new one. My old Anthem is in great shape and it's an 04. My 07 Design is only used once so far, so I can't speak about that one.

your generalisation is as ludicrous as his generalisation.

i know guys who ride almost nothing but park and their boards are wrecked after one season. granted i work at a ski resort so i know people who are getting more days than a typical rider but to say "a board thats ridden in the park definitely lasts longer than a season" authoritatively applies to everybody is just as silly.

i've had my current board for about 2 seasons although i rode a lot less last year than in previous years. i think it will be great for another season or two.

I've never had a park board last me more than one season. its too easy to destroy your edges on rails
