BOARDMART TUNING AND REPAIRS

You spent a lot of cash on your snowboard or ski gear. Get the most out of it and take care of that investment. At Boardmart we recommend tuning your snowboard or skis once a year or about every 20 days on the hill. Also boards and skis love wax and you should get a hot iron wax about every 5 days on the hill. This is also the recommendation from all manufacturers. Edges get dull and bases dry out but by tuning your equipment you freshen up the base, expose new material and have better wax absorbtion and sharper more durable edges. We check all the screws on your snowboard bindings and look for anything that could cause you a bad day. We also work on ski bindings. We are able to perform any mount and adjustments required. All ski binding manufacturers recommend you torque test your skis at least once per season. Don't take chances test those bindings. There is a lot more to it and we love to talk shop so if you want more information on equipment care and how to get the most out of it call, email or stop by we are always available to geek out on gear.

Sharpen And Wax Tune: $30.00

New Board Prep: $20.00

We detune the edges to your specifications, clean off all stickers top and bottom then put a friction / buff wax on. If you would like to add in a iron wax that is just $5.00 more. Sometimes even new boards sit on the shelf for months and years and dry out so this is never a bad add on to start the season and your gear off right.

Very few boards come from the factory ready to ride and even if the companies strive to make that happen some details always seem to get missed. Also you never know how long a board has been sitting in a box or the shop floor and wax can dry out. It is always a great idea to have a qualified shop tech check out your gear and make sure that it is dialed and ready to ride.

Add A Flourinated Hot Iron Wax: $3.00

If you are getting one of our tunes consider getting a fluourinated hot wax. Fluorinated waxes are formulated to be a little smoother creating less friction and becoming a little faster expecially if the snow is a little warmer. If you have a sintered base board generally found on boards retailing over $400 this is definitely something to consider. Get the most out of your board.

Tuning Notes:

We can bevel the edges to any degree that you specify to get the performace you demand out of your equipment. We will detune according to your specifications depending on whether you want more of a park ride, all mountain or race feel. We also offer several types of waxes depending on snow conditions. Just ask and let us know. We strive to make sure you have the best day possible on the hill. It does not matter if you are headed to our local mountain Mt Shasta or on a ski trip to the Austrian Alps we will get your gear ready.

Waxes Only Snowboard & Skis

Includes thorough cleaning of base with removal of old wax. We feature waxes from Toko, One Ball Jay and Wintersteiger. We are able to do special wax set ups depending on whether you are racing or want something specific for the park. If you have a request, just let us know.

Friction Hot Wax: $7.00

Great for 1 day on the hill and in between hot iron waxes to make them last longer. Usually gone by the end of the day especially if it is icy.

Hot Iron Wax: $20.00

Get a Hot Iron Wax once a year or every 5 ish days on the hill. Wax literally gets pulled out of the base as you ride down the hill. It is O.K. though because this is what helps us turn smoother, ride faster and get through those flatter areas and sticky snow days. It just means we need to wax our gear.

Flourinated Hot Iron Wax: $23.00

Do you have a sintered base snowboard or ski and want to beat your friends down the hill or go bigger in the park, consider Flourinated wax. Better quality and will always be a little smoother and faster.
