Snowboard edges - Tuning your own

I'm bloody old now and thought it's about time I sort my board out myself instead of paying a load of cash for someone else to do it..

So how do you go about tuning your snowboard?

I found this video which is one of the best.. Loads of others but the marker trick is pretty cool...

Anyway check it out..

I'm yet to buy the kit and have a play as I'm going to check out what my local snowboard shop uses and get the same sort of stuff..

From the above video and other snowboard tuning videos I've watched you seem to need the following:

  • Plastic scraper
  • Mental scraper
  • File
  • Diamond Stone
  • ptex
  • wax
  • vice

I'll update the post and start another with new advice on tuning :)

New snowboard kit and new ideas for 2011

I love helping teach my mates to board and have done for many years now..

One big problem I've had is my bum getting wet when waiting for the learner who is walking up some hill as fell at the bottom of the bump ( we all remember doing that and still do sometimes)..

I was chatting to the guy in my local snowboarding shop and he said I should get knee pads and kneel instead of sitting on my bum..

So this year 2011 I'll be giving it a go and will let you know if it works out.

I don't wear any padding or helmets as I have a fear of going faster (to fast) if wearing safety padding and alike as my brain thinks I'll be unbreakable!
