I did a quick search and didn't find this issue.
I grabbed a friends board to wax it for him. He has never waxed it before (4 or 5 yrs old). I don't know how to describe the issue it had, but the entire base felt like it had a bit of fur (for lack of a better description). I hit it with a scotch-brite pad, then cleaned the base, and followed it up with a good wax job. The base felt much smoother, yet was nowhere near how it's suppose to feel. Aside from rewaxing it, is there any special base prep that I'm suppose to do to/can do to help it out?
