After putting all of your money towards a new snowboard, the least you can do is show it a little respect. It's bound to get thrashed, but it still needs some love. A bunch of companies make this easier than ever.
Burton Tuning Vises ($80)
These turn any table or bench into a tuning station. Good for waxing, edge work, or mounting bindings.
Crab Grab Mini Claws ($13) and Crab Sticks ($12)
Could you imagine riding a skateboard without griptape? Same idea. Let your board know you care.
Lib Tech MTX Tuning Tool ($18)
For any of you readers riding Magnetraction, this little tool helps you sharpen that serrated edge.

Dakine Adjustable Tuning Iron ($50)
A little wax can go a long way any day of the year. Getting stuck in the flats on a pow day sucks, so does casing jumps.
Gnu Large Wax Scraper ($11)
Get the excess wax off the board.
One Ball Jay Wax Brushes ($16 / each)
A brass brush takes old wax off the base and provides a good bonding surface for the new stuff. A nylon brush buffs and removes excess wax from base after you scrape.
Ass Industries Cold Temp Wax ($13)
Bluebird Travis Rice Wax ($11)
