The stomp method works for getting snow off your board; combine it with a little back-and-forth and the snow just slides off.

However, this is mostly useless if there is any ice buildup on your topsheet. Snow sticks to this ice and must be removed manually. The remaining ice must also be scrubbed off manually.

I went to Wal-Mart and got a $5 little tub of green Turtle Wax (super hard shell). I applied it to the topsheet as I would a car.

What I found was that snow would still pile up, but the aforementioned shake+stomp method would shake off surface snow. Any remaining snow was easily wiped off, leaving no ice buildup.
