Taking Care of Your Snowboard Accessories

March 30, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 135

Snowboarding is a winter sport that challenges your physical and mental strength while necessitating the use of appropriate accessories and equipment. The first and most important equipment you need for snowboarding is the board. Other than the board, you need snowboard shoes, bindings, snowboard helmets, snowboard gloves and many more.

Whereas the board, shoes and bindings are the most basic requirements of the game, snowboarding helmets and other protection gears are required to keep you safe and protected. This is why it is important to keep your snowboard equipment maintained and safe from wear and tear. A damaged set of equipment not only degrades your performance but also becomes quite risky. In addition, a proper maintenance of your snowboarding accessories will save costs of buying the new items for a long time. Here are few tips you can use for maintaining your snowboard accessories:

Cleaning your board

This is the most important step you should take in order to protect your board from damages. After each winter season, you will notice that dirt and moisture have been accumulated on your board. You can use a citric cleaning liquid to remove the dirt and dead wax off the surface of your board. You can just use a piece of cotton cloth to clean your board.

Fixing the edge of your board

In order to protect your board from damages, you should keep checking the edges of your board. If they look too sharp, damaged or blurred, you should file them to make them smooth. You can also use some filling for fixing any minor damages to the edges. In case of a major damage or breakage, you should take your board to a professional repair shop.

Waxing your board

Waxing your board is important to keep your board in a good form. In order to apply wax to your board, you need wax, a scraper and an iron. You can apply a coat of wax on the board such that the edges are also covered. Then, you need to scrape the extra wax off the edges and the base surface.

Storage of your snowboard gear

Your protection accessories such as snowboarding helmets, gloves, shoes and board should be stored in a place where they do not get direct exposure to high temperatures, moisture or sunlight. They should be stored in a cool dry place during the summers. Moisture and dirt are the worst enemies of your accessories. Therefore, you should store them only at a place which is free from moisture and is kept clean.
