Need some help please ENDEAVOUR
 
Hey guys, got a bit of a problem, i bought a 2014 Endeavour Vice in the late summer, August i believe, picked it up in the UK...

Got a good deal (i think), and was happy...

Well the season got under way recently, and being someone who is normally well prepared, i waxed all 4 of my boards prior to riding any of them.

So i tried out the Vice 1st, only messed about on it for a total of maybe 12 trips over 2 days in a short park, 500 metre length, and noticed that the wax had not lasted very well...!

I put this down to icy conditions, no more than normal where i am, and certainly not extreme...

Anyway, so i waxed again on friday just gone, rode yesterday with Sneaky, had 4 trips about 1.5 mile each trip, and thought nothing more of it... Went again today, did 8 runs of the same distance, and went in for lunch when i noticed this on the bottom of the board...!!!

Now i am not one to try and pull a fast one, and i really do look after my equipment very well...

So my question is, why has this happened...???

I know that if you run a board with no wax, it will dry out, and do this, but this is far from that, and if you look in the pics closely you will see that it is starting in the middle of the board as well.. Not just the edges...

Some advice would be good before i email endeavour, as if it is something simple, then i will try to correct it myself, if it is something more serious, then i will need to email them...

Just wax with cold on the edges. Your wax wore off. I'm not a waxing pro, but it should be fine.

In your second picture, it looks like you scratched a squiggly in it somehow...maybe with your nail or something? Anyhow, does that mean what we see is a film? If so, it probably due to early season snowmaking that often has a bunch of crap in it that sticks to your board. Thats my best guess as I have had a film form on the bottom of boards after sessions at the local park that is 90% man made snow.

I saw that too. If that's the case, try taking a metal scraper to it to see if it comes off.

There is nothing wrong with your board at all and its not dry. Thats wax turned white. Banjo, thats pretty interesting and very possible. I ride alot of man made snow and it happens to my board as well. Just use your iron and heat the wax up again then brush it. :thumbsup:

Why it happens. Now that I do not know.

Use a colder wax on the edges

There is super cold & hard wax for this purpose

Is that sarcasm...???

I think warranty is a little much if i do say so myself, as being in Norway with a board purchased in the UK from a Canadian company may be hard to get sorted.... Haha

I just wanted to know what it is and possible solutions, without having to deal with them if possible, time and learning something about the cause is better for me, so i can deal with it in the future should it happen again, i'm certainly not gonna go running back and demanding a new board if that is what you where thinking... ;)

That said, as i didn't know what caused this, it was a little worrying for me... :D

yea theres nothing wrong with it at all not one bit, so....

WARRANTY! MOTHERFUCKER!

Extruded base? It's nearly unavoidable when riding on icy hard pack... a steel brush or hard fiber-tex before waxing will help clean it up... Otherwise it's normal wear & tear
