Snowboard season is coming. And while I can’t wait, my wallet doesn’t agree with me. 2 years ago, I was spending a pretty penny bringing my snowboard to a shop for tuning and waxes. I’m sure you’d agree that that wasn’t the brightest idea ever. In an effort to build up a bit of a personal work area, I bought a table from my local Wally World. Does it work? I guess. But I recently found something awesomely innovative and convenient. The Swix Snowboard Table has some pretty rad features as they bring this one in for 2015 & 2016, and I’m kind of stoked about it.
Now if you need an all out permanent setup for your snowboard, then this probably isn’t for you. This table was designed to be on the go, or if you’ve got a seriously limited amount of space. It’s got a modest height adjustment between 28 and 38 inches, and only weighs about 9 pounds. It’s not the sturdiest thing on the planet, but I’m after portability here, so I really don’t mind that. I need something to hold my board so I can do my own tuning.
It’s about as easy to put up and take down as an ironing board…without the board. It sits neatly in your closet or truck bed, and barely takes up any space. For those with a bit of close living quarters, the Swix 2016 snowboard table is for you.
What’s cool about this little setup is a simple feature built right into it that’s going to keep you from buying one thing after another to make your table work for you. If you look at the image above, you’ll see that the resting pads are split on each side. You can do you wax job, then, slide your board in between the pads, and the table HOLDS the board for your edge tuning! How cool is that!?! Additionally, you’ve got adjustable clamps built RIGHT into the table, helping you lock the board down in place.
Now I might be spending a bit on getting my own workbench all laid out correctly, but if I need to take my snowboard and my tools on the go with me, this Swix Snowboard Table for 2016 is the way to go. Big win.[button link=”http://amzn.to/1LkTjD4″] Buy the Swix Snowboard Table on Amazon[/button]
