        Welcome!  Nice looking board there.  If you have been snowboarding for 9 years, why so long until you finally buy a board.  You do not go very often? Looks like you are into gaming too!

            Yeah, I go once or twice a year so it just seemed easier to rent.  Much to my blindness lol.The xbox 360s are my roomies.  But techincally one of them is mine now ( he was too lazy to send it in to get fixed for free since it had the red ring of death and I did and now it's basically mine now. )I have a pretty good computer

              I would like to see that wax scraper catcher thing in a video to see how/if it actually works as intended.The Dakine kit looks really nice.If you have the time, space, patience, and money to learn tuning yourself then sure, go for it.  If not, have a shop do it.  The guys there can do a better job than you and I can, lets face it

                Well I'd like to wax my board before I go on my trip so that's the main reason I want to do it myself.  ( so i don't have to waste time having the shop do it when I could be snowboarding ).I live in North Dakota and there's no ski shop near me at all…  so that's why I can't just bring it to a s

                  Good question.  Either choice is good.  I lean towards the kit since it includes everything you need for basic tuning and probably comes with a manual for tuning tips.

                      I cant really answer that last question (dont an edge toool and pocket stone do the same thing tho?)But btw you prollly shouldnt need the base cleaner as far as i know since you just bought the snowboard.  Ive heard its not good for the base either (someone correct me if im wrong

                        I don't think so.  I thought and edge tool made a beveled edge on ;your snowboard.  a pocket stone just smoothed stuff out..?
