The important thing is to have covered the entire effective base with wax, warmed enough for it have soaked in to the crevices. (You don't really have to worry about the tips). I'd bet there are as many different techniques as there are snowboarders, but the important thing is the result.

As long as you don't overheat and damage your base, it's really not a high-precision task.
