Stranda Snowboards founder/shaper Mats Drougge explains the simple steps for safe storing of a snowboard. Before you put your board away for summer you need to cover the base in hot wax. This protects the base from drying out during summer. And from getting scratched. After waxing store it in a dry cool and place. When season starts just scrape of the wax and brush it with a nylon brush. If you want to optimise glide apply wax for cold snow, scrape, brush and then you’re ready to go.
