Need help: LF Trip base
Hi Guys. Im new here.

I have a 2011 LF trip board and the base of it is wearing off due to occassional rail use.
What can I do to reinforce it? Since it is not grind base. Is there anything you recommend to put on the base like something i can spray on or apply on it? Fiberglass? Top coat? Etc.
btw, i wouldnt mind to sacrifice the graphics.

I know many of you will recommend to buy a grind/slider base board. Yes, I will have one but not anytime soon. Maybe late this year. So I wanna ride with this board first and use it on the rails.

I know that I am going to get destroyed for suggesting this, but try a little light wax on the base. It is by no means a solution, but reducing the friction might help you limp through the season.

There is nothing you can do except buy a board specifically for the cable. I've used snowboard wax for boards that were sticky on the sliders, but it was pointless.

Thanks man. I'll give it a try. But what kind of wax? Im from Asia so snowboarding is not a thing here. Lol

Just wanna "toughen" the base a bit til I get a new board. I shred once a week.

Eyeing for CTRL or SS boards but problem is , stocks are very limited here, so i'll have to wait.

You can't toughen the base with wax. Watch out for CTRL's claim that they don't need a grind base on the one's that don't have it. They wear out fairly fast.

I use epoxy on my non grondbase board. I grinded through the base (i could touch the wood core) and managed to fix it. it doesnt look new but it works great and grinds as new :D
