Why worry about ptex unless you've already coreshot your board? Get someone who knows how to make a nice ptex job if you are worried about the way it looks... or don't run over rocks perhaps
What about shallow bonks and whatnot? Ptex or not?

I was putting it in a board bag last season, so far this year I've brought it dry in a board bag, and left it wet in the trunk because I get lazy.

nickwarrenn It MAY be debris in the inserts. I'll check it after. I'll also run to the hardware store later and get some screws.

basso4735 Sometimes those bumps under the bindings are from waxing without loosening the screws first, but I have only read about it. In my experience I have hot waxed with the screws tight and I didn't get any bumps.

SimonB Sport check should have some. Possible hardware store too (M6 screw size)

Repair shop at the resort should have them.

As for wiping down, you can wait until the snow as melted...
Where could I get shorter screws? Would I have to go to a board shop (none locally), or would sport chek or a hardware store stock them?
