Time for a new board
So, I've had my 08 Watson since March of 08, and I keep hearing that boards lose their pop as the core weakens over time. Would you say that a 2-1/2 year old board that was used pretty frequently it's first year, and nearly every day of it's second year, as well as very, very frequently (but not quite every day) of this season would start to be showing signs of age? Would it be worthwhile to swap it out for a Watson Classic, or should I stick with it. I just can't be sure if part of my lack of pop is because of my technique, or because the board's core has gotten soft (I'm a pretty big dude to, 6'6" 220ish) and that board has taken a pretty good beating over the years. I mean I know I have some bad habits that lead to less than ideal pop, but what are the chances that a semi-old, well used board happens to be part of that problem?
