Totally! The horror of coming around the bend and finding moguls with all sorts of bizarre things sticking out of it, particularly if your on "the good board". Crunch scrape crunch

Eh. If anyone wants to add anything, feel free. Just make sure someone else hasn't posted it already.

and after you have scraped.... i suggest you get a stiff bristled brush; not quite wire wool, but say somethign your grandpa uses to clean his dentures with!

then use the brush to score tiny lines in your finished wax job, that run parallel to your edges. this helps to create the water conduit channels referred to in this threads initial monster post. (oh i also and finally use a cloth / rag to lightly rub / brush off any loose scrapings / bits of crap)


a question!

my nitro has a carbon base. i use graphite wax on it.... but what for the fat gouges? is p-tex really all that can be used?

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

There is a ski/snowboard supply outfit in the States called Tognar. They have a product that resembles soft and skinny p-tex. This stuff is much harder than p-tex sticks and can even bond to metal. If I get a core shot or deep gouge I'll use a thin skim of epoxy, followed by this base weld material to fill up the majority of the gouge. Then for cosmetic purposes I'll follow up with a p-tex stick although it's nice the greatest looking stuff. Swix has this other product that looks like a powder. You sprinkle the powder into the gouge and I'm not sure how, but you apply some heat to it. I believe they designed it for sintered bases.
