Why is it that if you leave a layer of wax on the board, it wont get a good glide to it?
The next time you wax your board, scrape off the wax like you normally would on half of the board, and then run your hand from the scraped to unscraped area. You'll feel that the unscraped part is sort of grabby, and definitely not smooth. Your base is fast, not the wax.
