A snowboard can get contaminated with salt, road debris or transmission fluid. Find out how to resurface a snowboard through light grinding and sanding with help from the manager of a snowboard store in this free video on snowboarding gear and equipment.
And in this clip, we're going to go over resurfacing a snowboard. Basically, what's needed whenever you resurface a snowboard, the base might be contaminated by salt, road debris, maybe transmission fluid from a SnowCat... mud, other things off of the hill. Also, you might have a few little boogers and burrs on the base, where P Tex isn't needed, but a light grind will make it smooth as butter, as good as new, ready for wax, ready to church up the edges, get you back on the hill, performing the way you need to. So next, we're going to turn on the Montana, we're going to glide it across the sand belt, nice and smooth, with even pressure. Nose to tail, nice and smooth. What we're trying to do is getting this back to a vibrant color, getting the debris out of the base, freeing it up of burrs. So we're going to talk it over the belt, nice and smooth. Inspect the base. So not everybody's going to have a machine like this at home, but yet your local snowboard shop will. A little bit of love on the base of the board, will basically keep the life of your snowboard a lot longer... maybe get a lot more life out of the board, also opening up the pores to maintain and hold wax a lot longer. Keeping your ride on the hill a lot faster.
