2006 burton chopper 121 base

I bought my son this board and was wondering what the base is on this, extruded or sintered? Didn't know know if I need to wax it or not if it is extruded.

kids board, more than likely extruded, you should be able to tell just looking at it. either way it never hurts to wax if you have a lot of flats where you ride

Yea it looks extruded to me but thought I'd ask. I thought waxing an extruded base doesn't do anything because it will not hold the wax like a sintered?

The only burton kids board with a sintered base is the Protest.

Wax still helps on extruded bases.
