  #2  how can I take care of my snowboard?  Posted 13/08/2016 @ 22:05
I am a newbie here and want to know about caring of my board. I have a k2 standard board that I usually ride.

how can I clean my board after a ride?

Should I replace the bearing those are showing some problem?

if I replace the binding straps is the board works better?

I can't feel so comfort on my board. So what can I do now for better performance of my board?

Hi David.
The site is quiet this time of year.
My board usually get thrown in the garage/shed/van when it's not being used.
No real need to clean it, a good wax when needed is all that's required.

Hi David, when you finish your season, if you're not going to ride it in domes through the summer months then wax it but don't scrape the wax off. Ensure you spread the wax over your edges to help stop them from going rusty and them store the board in a dry well ventilated place free from condensation. When your ready to use it again then scrape it, brush it and polish the base to finish it off.

...and make sure the wax you are using is pure paraffin.

Hello Fella,
I have a chamois in my bag so after riding I will wipe the base and top off to ensure there is no water to rust the edges however there's always snow on awkward places on the bindings so I always chamois the board again when I get back and leave it to dry over night and then I will store it, never in sunshine and always in a cool place.
