The thought of having a shop check my equipment has never really entered my head. Or how about you take your board to get waxed, and then ask the guy to give it a once over for you. Should take him 30 seconds
Board to Binding connecttion is definitely the most important. Some other possible problems:
- Cracks (could lead to major board breaking problems while on the slope.
-bevel problems, you dont want to have none control .
- metal sidewall dents (minor issue)
- waxing i guess. (rly important btw, slow board takes the fun out of riding in my op)
If you find your bindings coming loose, put a dot of BLUE loctite on the screws before tightening them up. This will stop them coming loose from vibrations, but still be easy to undo with a screwdriver
