Hi everyone, I am wanting some summer storage advice. I waxed it and put the board in my board bag. The bag is in my room right now. would it be ok to put in my attic or my garage. And any other storage tips would be appreciated, thank you.

My storage solution is to leave the boards precariously balanced against a shelf, so that if anyone jostles them they easily fall, possibly maiming my guest.  I think it's a good system.

Location shouldn't matter much...maybe keep it out of direct sunlight but other than that...if they can handle being outside in the cold all day they won't just fall apart just sitting on a shelf in your garage.

I would recommend that you loosen the bindings from the board so that the heat wont melt the plastic causing the inserts to come out.

I've heard people mention this before.  I never loosen or unmount my bindings for storage and have never had an issue...has anyone had this actually happen to a board (other than when waxing)?

You can put it anywhere but remember to put a coat of wax on it and don't put things laying on top of it because you might affect the camber with prolong weight on it.

like the other mentioned you can put it anywhere you like as long as there is no moisture or extreme heat around the area. because you don't want any rust edge. 
hmmm... Now What???

Mines in the travel bag and in the attic, its a thick-ish bag and waterproof so if its not safe and protected in that then there's something very wrong!

I bought my mounts from Rixontm.com because they're small and cheap.  They're out of stock right now so it took almost a week to get mine.

I think some people over think storing their boards....but I took my bindings off and threw it under my bed.  The only reason I took the bindings off was because it was easier to store that way.  I used to keep it in the attic, but I hated going up there to put it there and then ultimately bring it back down in the winter....so under the bed was easier.  There isn't really a wrong way to store it.

For me, I remove the bindings and then just laid it flat under my bed.

Definitely keep it out of direct sunlight for sure.

Yeah, I think as long as it is in a bag there should be no harm in putting the board in your attic. Just as long as you keep it away from mold.

I usually take off the binding, and store it anywhere at room temp. I would advice storing in garage as it may get hot in the summer. Store anywhere with minimal moisture and you will be fine.

Yep, the coat of wax is good.  I think the garage or attic should be fine as long as it doesn't get way too hot.

the reason for loosening the bindings has nothing to do with melting... it just removes stress from the inserts. but i have always had bindings remain on and nothing ever happened.

be careful taking them out of storage. found a brown recluse in my boot today.

Where ever you want it really. Just try avoid letting the sunlight hit it, due to paint fading.
Take off your bindings or loosen them, so in extreme weather changes the board doesn't crack.
You'll probably have to re-wax it when you use it again next season thou.

If only Queensland had snow...

Put a good coat of wax on the bottom and slide it under a bed. Works great for me. Keeps my boards out of the way. I've kept my boards in the attic and garage before with no problems. The crappy thing about the attic is climbing up and down the ladder.

i say, remove the bindings, give the board a good solid wax then clean it and store it. when it's time to ride again, check out the condition of the board (if it needs another wax) and proceed accordingly.

I take off the bindings of my board.. wax it.. clean it.. put it in a bag out of the way (In my closet).

No need to show off your board on the wall, just put it in a safe place where it wont be damaged.

I also put the bindings back into its box in my closet with the board =)

I don't even know where my board is right now.
 
Either under my bed, in the garage, or in my closet.
