Thanks all for your help!
I rode yesterday and I can say that it was FAST! I noticed today that the edges are wicked dry, so I just brushed off the old wax and redid a new wax job. This time I "crayoned" the entire surface, with extra crayoning at the edges... then I dripped a [i/little[/i] bit of wax in various places to give the iron a thin surface to slide on. After the crayoning, the board looks like half-burnt toast (about 4x more black spots than in the above photo.) lol.
