Default 08 Burton Dominant chips too easily.

ive been riding the 08 burton dominant since the beginning of the season, and ive noticed that my board is covered in chips. i have a feeling its because of what the top sheet is made out of, its not like most other board with that smooth gloss like top sheet. well anyway everytime i ride, i come home and take a look at my board a see that i have a few new chips and dings. does anyone else ride an 08 dom and have this problem? its kinda pissing me off -_-

dominant=throw away board, the only way to prevent this is dont BS and dont stand next to assholes in lift lines

Boards gonna get chipped..Here's something that might help take a file and file the topsheet(edges) kinda like you would do your nose and tail, dont go crazy with it just enough to round them out some. This will round out your sheet somewhat so when your on the lift if someone bumps you it will ride up on the board instead of bonking it.

How long do you think a dominant will last in the park? I am saving up for a snowboard setup.

well the base stays in perfect condition since it doesnt have those pores like an all mountain board does. you will never really need to hot wax it or ptex it. all you will need is some rub on wax after a few days of riding.

as for the edges and topsheet, if your doing what the dom is made to be doing, rails, jibs, and everything inbetween, from personal experience, prob not longer than 1, possibly 2 seasons. depending on how much you ride per season. my board is touching snow an average of about 25 times a season. and if your hitting practically everything on the mountain thats not made out of snow, its not lasting more than one season.

next season, im def getting something that will hold up a little better.

backwards!

cheap extruded bases are meant to be destroyed.

you will need to p-tex it when appropriate to do so.

there is some contention about the effects of hot wax on an extruded base, but a rub-on wax will do absolutely nothing for a snowboard.
