By popular demand, this service provides the same care and attention as the Premium but with a finishing belt in place of a stone-ground one.

*Extra Ptex costs £5.00 ONLY if there is a lot of Ptexing to be done.


Bevel and sharpen edges, remove any burrs, polish and detune where necessary. Hot wax is applied for greater base penetration and improved glide – always done by hand. We can set edges to requested angles and also apply temperature-specific waxes for a small extra charge.

THE MIX AND MATCH (price available upon request)

If you are keen on trying one of the steps yourself, we can do the others for you. By mixing and matching exactly what you want, we can provide the expert touch to all your home servicing activities.


Can you service TBT (Triple Base Technology) snowboards?

We are able to service Bataleon and Lobster snowboards maintaining their TBT base profile.

Can you service snowboards with serrated edges without damaging the edge profile?

Snowboards with serated edges such as Magna-traction (Libtech/Gnu), Ultra Traction (Nidecker/YES), Frostbite edges (Burton) and others have non-uniform edge profiles. Our method of tuning edges maintains any serated edge profile.

Should I remove my bindings from my snowboard before I bring it into the store?

If you can remove your bindings before you bring your snowboard in to be serviced please do as this helps us out when we are busy. However don't worry if you can't remove them -we will be more than happy to do this for you in-store.
