Default SL-R, EVO-R, or any other NS RC board: Frequent dry bases?

First off, let me say that the Never Summer Kool-aid has been great for me.

I've never had so much fun with a board until I picked up my SL-R a few weeks ago. Coming off a Rome Anthem(Planktastic), and my damn reliable and fun Capita Photo-Fetish (too bad it was stolen... sigh), I can honestly say this base is the fastest I've owned.

However, I noticed that these bases love and need more waxing than my previous boards. Even after a two hour session, my base is pretty dry towards the edges of the rocker section. I've been waxing all my boards for years, and this was the first base that appeared to dry out relatively quick.

Have any other NS owners experience the same thing? Perhaps my base isn't level in the rocker section, which means a base grind is on order?

Long live the Ice Coast! HAHA
