^ Exactly what I was going to say.  A cheap iron and some wax is all you need to prepare your board for summer storage.

Get a base prep wax (Swix base prep or Swix CH 10) apply a thick layer and dont scrape off the excess like you normally would. Leave it on all summer long. Right before next season, scrape it off. Go to YouTube and look up how to apply wax.

Wax just protects the base from dust and other things that it may come in contact with. If you keep it in a bag in a climate controlled place (like in your house), it is probably less vital to wax your board, but I would still recommend it. Bindings I take out. No need to put any unnecessary stress on your board and it only takes a second. Probably doesn't matter though.

The wax also keeps the base from drying out so be careful about constant humidity and temp.

Placed in the board bag and put away in the crawl space, easy enough.  I have to remax my girl and my board to start out next season anyways so I avoided the heavy over summer wax.

A tuning kit (e.g. Dakine Super Tuning Kit) along with an iron should include everything you need to keep your board in shape.

Don't know if its been said but, the easiest thing to do is to clean it, hot wax it, and store it somewhere where it is protected. If you go to your local shop you can get those plastic sleeves (the ones that all new boards come in) usually for free. You have to take the bindings off to fit your deck inside the sleve but it will be more than enough to protect it.

Honestly though, in the past i've just left boards in my shed and in my room uncleaned, unwaxed, and unprotected and they are still fine. Its just more of a guarentee the first way.

I just was and put the board away in my bag with bindings off. But I have also left it in the garage without any prep either. I notice no difference.
