Did I scraped too much?? new to waxing
Whatsup guys, new to the forum!

I just got a new board as an early christmas present, a libtech hot knife :yahoo: and recently decided to start waxing my own board. i picked up an iron and everything else id need to wax, and waxed last night.

the wax job seemed to go well for my first time, but i think i may have over scrapped the edges.. i noticed that the boards base along the edges seemed a little dry and pale too before i waxed, idk if its normal to buy a brand new board thats like that. anyways as im scraping along the edges with a plastic scraper, im getting all the wax off and noticed that there was some black dust in the wax scrapings. after i brushed and polished the board, the board is super smooth except for along the edges in some spots, in streaks. its a littleee rough to the touch, and it still looks a little dry.

did i damage my base?? what should i do?

Ok, scrape your nail along those areas and tell me what happens.

Yeah it is 100% destroyed you need to send it to me ASAP.

It really looks like you just need to wax that area again scrape it again as for the black dust nothing to worry about could be dirt or something like that.

did you buff the board once you were done?

when i scraped the areas, i noticed a small amount of material came off and is now under my thumb nail, and the base got smoother

From what I can see, you still have wax on your board in those areas. You need to get a green scotch brite pad and give those spots and the whole board for that matter a good rubbing. You will see the wax show up on the scotch brite and keep rubbing till those spots are as smooth as a babies backside, and then give it a brushing and you are good to go.

Otherwise, you can leave it as it is, ride it and that wax will wear off after your first run.

Your choice.
