Proper Board Storage questions

This season I completely outfitted my entire family with new boards... That means I now have seven boards I need to store in the off season. I do not want to warp, damage, or ruin my boards by incorrectly storing my boards.

Can I store them on the wall? I have an indoor gym in my house that is temperature controlled that I would use.

Just keep em away from sunlight, top sheets and UV don't mix well.

Could have swore I heard the storing them a certain way was bad vs. storing them some other way.... they would be inside and out of sunlight in a temperature controlled room.

Just put a thick layer of wax on ands don't scrape. This will help with long term preservation of the base.

Wax and leave on
Takeoff bindings if u didn't take it off
Properly strap the bindings so it. Doesn't warp n put in box or shelf.

Don't stack boards .
Lean them against a wall or closet vertical


Drink a beer

Look at tube videos

Till next winter

Just wax it anything after that is whatever.

i belive it used to make a difference but with the addition of modern materials such a carbon fibre stringers this has stopped boards warping. ,my park board lives propped up the wall, wax it very rarely and it still rides as good now as it did when it was new. a few of my mates hang them on the wall and they're fine.

I just put on some wax and then keep it in the basement leaning against the wall. My basement has AC running during the summer so it doesn't get too humid down there.

When I put on the wax, I make sure the edges are covered. It's supposed to prevent them from getting rusty.

as long as its not stored with weight on it, it'll be fine. waxing isn't even required, it'll just help keep the edges from rusting, nbd.

Riding this season...
