- $26 for One Deluxe Snowboard Tuneup with Wax and Edge and Smooth Base Grind ($50 value)
7Twenty Boardshop keeps winter-braving adventurists fully armed with fine-tuned and high-end snow-slicers. Tune-ups, treat snowboards to a thorough five-step process that rejuvenates the board for prime downhill passage. After a base grind removed minor damage and scratches and a deep base clean clears pores of dirt and old wax, the techs file the board edge with gummy stones and sharpeners to remove rust and last year’s snowflakes. Then a hot hand wax with Dakine, OneBallJay, or Bluebird products seals the board before a hand buff makes the surface as smooth and nearly as cuddly as an emperor penguin’s pelt.
Skateboard decks and snowboards line the walls at 7Twenty Boardshop's four locations, ready to be used on urban and alpine adventures. The shop peddles equipment and apparel from a wide variety of brands, including major suppliers such as DC and Vans as well as local boutiques such as CandyGrind and Fluidium. The staffers go boarding around town themselves, and can help clients select products that will suit their shredding style or predilection for flame decals. The shops' inventory of stylish attire includes street-ready T-shirts and hoodies, outerwear, and hats.
