Guessing I Need a Good Re-Wax?
hoping to ask a stupid question here wondering if anyone has encountered such a thing..... was out last weekend during the warm spell; rode through rain, sleet, and snow. Board was fast while it was rainy with fog. Slowed down a bit through the day as it got colder.
Fast forward to tonight, myself and someone else that I was with put their boards on and there was basically no glide to them at all. It was like there was a set of brakes on. Going down the hill was painful and unsafe feeling. Temps tonight were much cooler (-16 C). Heelside braking was hard to do and would almost make you feel like falling. Things got a little faster though the night but not much of an improvement. Is this a sign of wax that isn't rated for the cold temp on my board or, the need for another wax job? Is it possible the warm conditions last weekend stripped the board and/or did something to the base?
The bottom doesn't really seem like it is drying out by looking at it
