Snowboard Maintenance & Repair - How To
If you are passionate about snowboarding, chances are you enjoy even the more mundane tasks associated with riding. Cleaning, repair, and other maintenance of your snowboard can always be taken care of at the shop, but if you want to save some money and do it yourself, there are plenty of things that you can do on your own. Be sure that you don’t take on too much, though; if there is major damage to a board’s edges, top sheet or base, you should let a professional take care of it.
To start, it is usually easiest when your work station is at-or-around hip height. Additionally, while not necessary by any means, a board vice is highly recommended to keep your equipment from moving around during scrubbing or scraping. With the proper equipment and a little knowledge, it’s easy to clean and wax your snowboard’s base, repair small dings and tune your edges.
