how can i tell if they're not up to standards? considering i know absolutely nothing about that stuff, i'd feel better just taking it to some guy/girl who does. unless it's pretty straight forward to notice, as well as fix.

i will try to learn the whole DYI for waxing and sharpening edges or w/e it is you do eventually though.

LOL! that shit made me laugh.

but i live in an apartment complex with store houses located next to the staircase top, so no basement with stairs ;p

NWBoarder Don't listen to these guys. It's going to spontaneously combust taking out your pets/children/wife/house or whatever you find near and dear to you. Seriously though, they're right, it's a snowboard, it'll be fine without some wax on it for a few months.

super-rad There was a 5 year period where I did no riding, and my board sat around with no wax. When I got back in to snowboarding I gave it a tune-up and it was good to go. Granted it was stored indoors.

Skier's Edge yea it won't cause any problems, just letting the wax sit on the board all summer helps to seal it better. I've been on the Skate Banana and it is an awesome board so enjoy the season!

KungMartin Alright that's good to know. Thanks bro

Oh and to be clear, I used it last year and early this year, so it doesn't have factory wax. I did wax it once or twice though before using it. I didn't really board much that season.

I just hope it hasn't dried out too much during the summer until now. I won't be using it again til December.
