Snowboard servicing tools

Hello all

I've decided that I don't want to send my board to a shop to have it's yearly service, and so want to do it myself.

I'll need to buy wax, scraper, cleaning fluid etc and will probably go online to bargainboards and get all that shizzle.

But do you know of any shops that would sell all this at a reasonable() price in Zurich so I won't have to do that?

Cheers

Dakine makes a really good all in one kit, better prices will be found on the internet. I think beach mountain sells them. If not then you can easily buy the toko kit at any sports shop like Oschner.

Better make sure you have somewhere to do it, hot wax can drip all over the place. Don't forget a pinny!.

I think you'll need suction cups to clamp the board down too, and those will need a workbench or similar.

Been thinking of getting my own stuff too, a mate usually lets me do it myself in the back of his shop, but it's hard to make the swiss opening hours.

Dripping wax is not the problem, it`s the excess you have to scrape off that makes the real mess. You can find sawhorses at jumbo fairly cheap. Thats what I use since it saves space as you can fold them up when your done.

Thanks for the tip. I just purchased what I need from Oschner cheaper than it was online, so result!

How did your self service work out? What parts did you purchase?

Do you think you achieved a decent standard? Will have a go myself this week I hope.

Does the lack of a reply mean you messed it up and took it to the shop to be fixed? :-)

Re: Snowboard servicing tools

I got some cheap scrapers and sand paper from Migros, a 2nd hand travel iron from a charity shop, and the rest of the stuff from Oschner. Put far too much wax on it the first time i did it which took ages to scrape off, but results were great.
