i just waxed my board to put it away for the summer. this was the first time i did it myself. i was wondering if i used too much wax. i used an entire 85 gram puck, which seemed to be just enough to completely coat the board. does this sound right? or should i have been spreading it out more?

here's what it looked like when i put it away...

I always scrape and brush nose to tail. Keep your scrapes and brushes as straight as possible. The pores in the base run lengthwise, so you want to work with them and not against them.
