Leo, i think you may be mistaken. He is the one arguing that base shape does not affect a boards speed as much as a fresh wax job does. And as soon as someone argued the point he seems to have changed his point of view to suit.
Im with you, wax makes a small difference, the big factor is the shape of the board and the camber profile. Which is exactly what i said t begin with, i have no idea what this dude is on.
I think Leo know's how to read Mom
