How to cut off overlapping outlines in Illustrator


Question

So I'm trying to make graphics on a snowboard on illustrator and some of the artwork goes outside of the outline of the snowboard. I'm wondering if there is a way that I could cut off the excess lines besides using the direct selection tool.

Non-destructive: Clipping mask. That's my pick

Destructive: Expand any effects and use the Pathfinder or Scissors to remove your unwanted vectors.

Lazy: Just indicate the object boundaries (the board) with a dieline and leave everything where it is.
