Default "Hot Scrape"

Hey guys

Just a few questions about performing a "hot scrape" on my board. Can I use regular all weather wax or do I need dedicated base prep wax? How exactly do I go about doing a hot scrape? Just wax it on and then scrape it while it's still warm?

Cheers.

Just use the cheapest wax you have. Yep, scrape it while it's still warm.

Ok sounds good. May I ask how effective a hot scrape is at removing dirt and crud?

It's the only way I clean my boards. Better than any base cleaner I've tried.

linvillegorge, do you iron the whole board and then scrape all at once, or do you do it in smaller sections? I ask because I feel like by the time I'm done ironing the whole board, a lot of the wax has cooled significantly (or at least to the point where it not very warm to the touch).

Good question.

effective, that's why it's considered the best way to do it

Unless your a slalom racer, what benefits does a normal snowboarder gain from a hot scrape? Changing to a different temp wax?

I've never done one. I just hot drip then heat the whole thing up real good and scrape after completely cooled then brush.

I'm curious to know what one would gain from that extra step!

Looking at videos of a hot scrape, it is evident that it removes a lot of dirt and grime. Seems like a good idea to get this dirt and grime out.

I am just going to add this in here. I also heard using a brush with some sort of metal in it was a good idea to do after hot scraping to get any old wax or dirt out the scraper didn't get. My question is won't brushing a metal brush over your base damage it? If not what would you guys recommend as a alternative to buying a "official" brush? I already saved on my regular brush by buying a cheap one at the supermarket...what would be a cheaper option for a copper or steel brush?
