Default so i got my board waxed...

this is kind of stupid... but oh well

So I took my board to get hand waxed at my local shop... When I got home, i noticed there was still A LOT of wax on it.. I dont have an official snowboard scraper, so I just used a piece of a CD case (lol ghetto I know). It didnt appear to have any sharp edges, but after I scraped a bunch of wax off, i noticed slight lines going down the board. I dont think I took all the wax off, so I think this was maybe just the edge of the plastic digging into the wax still on the board... Is this OK? Also the board doesnt look smooth... it feels smooth but it has a bunch of lines on it cause it still has a very thin layer of wax... is that going to affect anything?

Can plastic edges really scratch a board badly?

thanks.

I doubt you did any REAL damage to the base. Sounds like the edges just left a line in the wax. Hard to say for sure without pictures. It IS very possible to damage your base with a scrap though, so you should definitely be careful.

Pics? You probably just scratched the wax not the base itself, but it is possible if you were pressing really hard with hard sharp plastic.


EDIT, damn ninjad me flick.

Nah, doesn't look damaged at all. The edges were of the case were just slightly bigger than the area you scraped with. You should be fine.

After scraping wax off there is still at least one more step. Polish. I use a scrub brush for no wax floors. Some times I use the low abrasive brillo pads. I go one further and then cork the board.

The picture looks quite normal to me.

It polishes using overkill properties.
