Why does my base do this?

So I bought a brand new 2013 Burton Custom Flying V and have ridden 3 times in total. After riding, these white tiger stripe like lines show up in two spots on the base. They disappear when I wax the board but reappear after riding. They only occur in these two spots. So my question is why does this happen? Did I burn my base in these two spots while waxing or what?

Are those directly underneath your bindings? Make sure you take those out while you wax, you need your deck as flat as possible while you scrape and buff. Bindings tug on the base slightly and they create a small shallow spot that shelters the wax you are trying to scrape off. The white stripes are just wax you missed because of the indentations from your bindings.

Good News. No damage done.

My daughter has a Feelgood Flying V and although I cannot tell from your pics where these spots are on your board, my guess is that those two spots are right under your feet. The profile of the Flying V has two mini camber zones under each foot and they are a bear to firstly get wax to melt in and then when scraping it is really hard to get all the wax removed.

I believe what you are looking at is wax that you did not get off. You will have a hard time getting it off with your scraper. You need to go at those spots with a Scotch Brite pad to remove it.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

Don’t worry about it at all just wax it will go away as you board you will not feel the difference at all on the hill. Sometimes i hot wax my board do a quick scape and ride it with out buffing or anything on man made snow hills.
