Spring is upon us, and although that means flowers blooming, birds chirping, and warmer weather, it also means we are nearing the end of snowboarding season (tear). When this time of the year comes, most riders will haphazardly toss their boards aside and not think about them again until that next snowfall comes. While most of you may think there is nothing wrong with that, this practice can eventually lead to some serious problems come next season: warping, delamination, and rusting, just to name a few. Thankfully, there are a few quick and simple steps you can take to prevent this from happening. It will be a good six months at least until most of us can enjoy the pleasures of fresh-fallen snow again, so when you store your board, you want to make sure you do it right.
