|Qball||I go through 2 boards per season. But I ride almost year round so it's a lot of wear on a board.|

|john doe||I will completely admit to being a gear whore. I also make enough to be able to be a gear whore. I bought my Buck Ferton 3 season ago and still can't find a reason to buy another board for park riding. I did just buy a Lib Tech Jamie Lynn but that is a far stiffer board and more for going fast. Just yesterday I only took my Jamie Lynn and after a few runs I was wanting my Buck Ferton to hit the jibs with.|

|chad23||Just a follow up on the thread. Contacted DC and they decided to warranty my board even though it was 2 months out of warranty! They could not give me a 153.75 PLY so they gave me the option of any size PLY or a 153.75 MEGA board. I took the MEGA and i received it 2 days later! Great customer service at DC, they are making me a customer for life.|

Prior to 2010 I was on the same board for 15 years. It was an old stiff cambered beast with kevlar in it so it surprisingly still rode well. I outgrew it in size though so decided to change. Now I still have the board I replaced it with, and it rides like the day I bought it (despite all the core shots and abuse!) but I chose to replace it with another style board as my tastes/abilities changed.
I also just bought a park/play board. I fully expect these three current boards to last me years. I would expect 100 days on a board would be at least what you can expect from one, unless you're landing tail happy all the time. I watched Timmytard ride my current board for a lap and cringed when he landed on the tail a few times, but the thing just flexed and took it like a champ! So far so good! I knuckled a 30 footer last weekend and didn't crack the board.

|Donutz||I'm on my third year with my Heritage, but this is probably the last. Not that it's worn, but I'm getting antsy for some change.|

|boarderaholic||Depends on the circumstances. I used to go through boards once every other season or so, but the last board I bought is just wrapping up season four. I usually go by feel, and I can tell my NS is dying, so I'm in the market to replace it right now.|

|Argo||I buy my wife and I one each season and use the prior years as a rock board the next year. My son goes through a few a season. Between proforms and free shit its not too bad....|

My thinking with gear is that I use it alot, same thinking as the rubber on my tires (having a summer and winter set), so I may as well get a couple sets of everything in order to ease up on the wear and tear.
My Proto has almost 100 days on it and is super beat down, several core shots and the bottom and edges are just shredded. As such I needed a second board just to take the pressure off the Proto so it can spend some time not getting beat up and maybe even getting fixed. So I got an Evo. Now I realize I need another Proto, because it just slays all the gnar so hard, so early next year I will probably be replacing the shredded Betty with a new HD version.

Every couple of years if they last. I had to replace my west mark after a year, it was thrashed.
