maybe it's just me, but i think i'll go with the guy who's worked in a board shop for 10 years waxing boards. especially when he's saying the same thing every other guide is saying.

it makes perfect sense to me that scraping against the grain could damage your board. the scraper could easily catch in the grain. scraping with the grain that's obviously not a problem.

but hey, if you want to wax your board that way, more power to you.

do you prefer the word structure? it runs from tip to tail. scraping across it can damage your board. if you don't care, go for it.

All I know is that I got my board hotwaxed twice last year.

Twice, in over 35 days of riding.

It always went so fast I didn't think I needed to! :FacePalm:

i used to think that way until i started waxing my own stuff, and when its a fresh wax, you'll definitely notice when it's time to throw on some more

Last year one of the gear dudes at telluride suggested when I finished riding for the season that I should put a coat of wax on my board and not scrap it. They said this would keep my sintered base from drying out.

I did not do this and now my base looks like the base of the board has dried out. It has a white chalking kind of look (seems like the wax is what has dried out) My thinking is that I just remove whats left of the old wax and then rewax...scrap per Snowolf's videos and everything will be ok?
