Is a wood box bad for my board?

Well, I just started snowboarding and I'm a bit of a noob. Went riding a few times about a decade ago, bought a snowboard and made a hill of snow off my deck that connects to a ride on box. Well, the box is an old coffee table with a standard 80's style wood lamenent on top. It's pretty smooth, I did a few board slides on it but I was wondering if it's bad for my board.

I know a lot of people recommend putting some plastic sheeting etc. on boxes, but this thing is fairly slippery plastically wood finish, and I poured some water on it so it will freeze up. Will this dmg my board?

as long as the laminate doesn't have big chunks taken out of it , and it's best if you're on a reverse camber board, or zero camber.
also do it when it's relatively cold out, that way you're more likely to just skim the surface with less resistance and chance of chunking out pieces of the laminate. you're better off with a piece of UHMW plastic with the edges beveled if you plan to do boardslides and other rotational tricks.
but you should be fine
have fun!

It'll be okay at first but keep in mind that wood tends to chip and get scuffed up , especially if you're riding a snowboard across it all day.

Once it does have rough patches and chips you might want to put some plastic over it.
