Summer board storage

The season is done around these parts and I'm about to put the board away till next year. I was just wondering if there was anything that could be done to keep my board tip top while it sits in the closet for he summer?

as long as it stays dry it's going to be fine. you can say 'hi' to it every now and then to make sure it doesn't get too bored

Bindings off, clean the edges with a gummy stone, clean and wax the base, and put it on the wall!

I don't do much just a good thick hot wax (no scrape), bag it and hide it.

Kirk - any reason why you take your bindings off? The only reason I could think of would be the bolts seizing inside the inserts but I can't imagine that happening provided everything's dry.

bindings off, clean and wax no scrape. in room temp away from sun.
I sit my board down at 45 degree against a wall only contact points touching the wall and floor.

I do it regularly to dry the holes and because I have one set of bindings for 2 boards... but it's up to you.

Ah ok, just wondering that's all. I have bindings for each board and they never change position. I tend to change boards for different conditions when I can rather than move the bindings around. Maybe I'll take them off if I can be bothered dragging the board bags out again

+ 1 on all of the above.

If by chance you are going to store it in the garage or anywhere the temperature and humidity can fluctuate, take the time to grab a block of wax and run it completely around your edges to give them a light coating. Takes all of two seconds. It will greatly reduce any chance of rust showing up on your edges. Not so much a problem out west, but the humidity / temp changes in the east can cause it to happen.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

Pretty much just repeating what everybody else said.

I always loosen my bindings and slap a thick layer of wax on the bottom (no scraping). Then leave it in my garage.

Keeping bindings tight over the summer can warp your board. You can tell when you wax and there is an indent under where each screw goes in.

Definitely loosen those screws at least.
