Joe77 Sad day today. Against my will, I removed the bindings, wax the base, stored board on the altar and said my farewell prayers.

Redline That almost worked as planned. It took a bit longer than I expected though. I was hoping to get some of the uber nerds fired up over this one. Mission failed, sort of.

Yeah, I got a good core shot at Louise last weekend coming down the ridge between Fallout and Big 7 (there's more snow than in this picture)... I went back up and rode it again!!!

The board is a tool not a piece of art, treat is as such.

ItchEtrigR If you ain't taking off your bindings to check your base plates for cracks you aren't riding hard enough

I'm with Pouts on this, it's a snowboard destroy that shit or at least give it a proper try.
Throw it in the storage end of the season and do it again next year.

Agreed

Big Foot Lol you guys put way too much effort in. After my last day of the season I just zip up the board bag and put it in the closet. Until the next season.

Didn't do that last summer and it was a real bitch getting from heal to toe.

You know what else UHMWPE (ptex) is used for? Body armor. You aint gonna hurt it.
I agree, just lay it flat so the camber doesn't flow all to one side and let it be. These things are made to be abused.

Seriously though, as a recovering skier who took a 7 year hiatus from snow sports my Volkl race skis looked brand new without any wax and with no rust. And my basement is in serious need of running a dehumidifier.
