Nah you don't need to treat it any differently cuz it's brand new. New boards do come with wax already on them but it's not a bad idea wax it anyways. You don't necessarily need to wax it for the summer if it's brand new, just leave it be and it'll be fine for the next season.

razzi What's summer storage?? I ride my board year-round... haha

When I lived in St. Louis, I didn't listen to any of the bullshit about taking the bindings off or whatever, but I did wax my board and left it there all summer. My board still rides the same, it didn't fuck up the camber or whatever, leaving the bindings on, that is. Definitely store them away from humid places like garages, you don't want the board to rust.

con3593 you do want to remove the bindings

Storing your snowboard off-season

How should I handle my board as it sits idle in the summertime?? Should I remove the bindings? Should I treat the board with anything special? Not sure if I should be doing anything particular with the board while I am waiting for the snow to fly once again (other than admire it hanging on my wall).
