Fixing Up A Snowboard
Last week my friends little brother got a snowboard at a consignment store and since I like snowboarding A LOT, my friend asked me if I could fix it up for him. My first impressions of it were that it was not really going to be a big deal and I was mostly correct. There were a lot of little things that needed to be done, so I figured I could just take some pictures and post them here.
Mostly the edges were "ok" and since my friends little brother hasn't really snowboarded before I pretty much left them as they were. The most I did was smooth them out where they had been chipped or smashed, and sand/file all the rust and grit off. The fun came when it came to waxing since it had absolutely nothing on the base. This made it hard to get all the dirt and grit out of the base, snow is unbelievably dirty, because normally you can just heat up the residual wax and all the junk floats to the surface and they you can wipe it out. Also with a totally dry base like this one, it takes much more work to get that first layer of wax to truly melt into the base. After that I fixed all the chips in the top base and put some bindings on.
The bindings that I put on are just a cheap pair, they came off my spare snowboard, and since they are just a hare too small for my new boots, these bindings were my very first pair so they are on the small side, I figured what the heck and bolted them on.
