This is the most important. Also, run wax (or a thin coat of WD40 if you prefer) over the edges (first making sure they're clean and dry). That'll protect them from rust over the summer.

This's pretty basic stuff here.
More than 5 seconds I found duck tape loosens creating air pockets interfering with cryogenical freezing.

Put a decently thick coat of wax on BOTH sides and the sidewalls. Make sure to get in the binding screw holes.

Wrap the hole thing in 2 layers duck tape.

Next your gonna want to fully submerge the board for at least 12 hours. I used my bath tub but you can use a pool, creek, pond etc. I use dumbells to weigh it down.

When you remove the board from the water, quickly(within 5 secs )dry the board with a damp towel and place it into a chest freezer.

Store it in the freezer until October or as needed.

When your ready to thaw your board, perform this process in reverse..

The idea behind this technique is that the duck tapes soaks up water and freezes, creating a winter like environment for your board to "hibernate" in. The wax protects the board from water.

Hope this helps!

ekb18c Keep it away from water and sunlight and you will be fine. I just lay them against my wall in my garage away from my car.

f00bar For the kids figure out a way to mount them on their walls. I'm going to go out on a limb and say your wife may not approve in your own room, but you never know.

tannersdad I feel your pain. With the wife and kids, I've got 5 rigs to store as well.

Keep it out of the attic and storage shed. I bought a pair of boot's stored in someones attic. They didn't look dry rotted when I bought them, but after a day on the slopes, they crumbled like cornbread. A buddy of mine kept his standing up on end in his shed out back. It got so hot the stomp pad slid halfway down the board. Temp. control is the only thing I worry about.
