Eventually you should be buying a more up to date board anyways or maybe even try a new type of board.

waxing does not protect your board from scratches.  besides, your theory there is that there is wax on the surface to act as a buffer between the base and rail, but thats not even how wax works.  wax goes inside the base, not on the surface, so thats a faulty theory on two accounts.

So from reading this thread I have gathered.
 
  • Waxing  my board protects it
  • Jibbing rocks will break it in half
  • Warranty covers my board if my wax runs out and I break my board in half on a rock
Sweet, thanks!

This thread is full of stupidity.

Wax does not protect your base from rails, boxes, wood, twigs, rocks, or any other material NOT snow. Also, for those of you that say you have crappy jib board, 90% of them have EXTRUDED bases which DO NOT absorb wax anyways so you are essentially pissing money away by waxing so much.

Next, what the hell kinda crap park are you riding if your jibs scratch your base? The only way that makes sense is either poor welds/ground welds on the jib or screws sticking out of the top of boxes. Aside from that you will not scratch your base at all.

Lastly, what constitutes a scratch to you? If it isn't worthy of P-tex filling i wouldn't be too concerned, and unless you have core exposed chances are it doesn't need p-tex.
I'm just here to look cool...

I honestly hope that ACRucrazy was joking with his last post.

And Scorer summed up everything this threads needs to know.

If you check out the rail you're going to ride on to first for sharp edges... you will be fine

You will fall when you are learning, but edge catching is not usually the issue, as long as the rails/boxes are in good shape.

Just out of curiosity, how much damage does a board take from the avid park-goers here before it's time to get some new wood?

I have gotten a couple scrapes from rails but nothing serious. I think my board has actually sustained the most damage from people in the lift line getting to antsy and slidding their skis or board under mine.

either way. you can fix any scratch with a p-touch candle.
