Trying to assess and categorize where people are relative to 'Nurturing their boards', which may help the discussions regarding tips and techniques, it seems that these are the main categories:
A-Serious-racers, pros (makes a living on skis or snowboards), recreational, where only the highest standards of tuning, waxing, repairs, tasks tools and supplies are considered and practiced.
B-Performance-recreational & pros, depending on priorities and other factors can range from the highest standards to allow for some 'rationalized' or acceptable 'slop', but still want very good performance and maintain gear.
C-Leisure-wants to protect their investment and do the basics only to keep it simple and fun.
D-Other-another category? Please offer alternatives if needed.
Please offer other ideas and input.
