Yeah... the older I get the more I keep to freeriding. Safer on the bones and the board.

How the heck do i get the dang wax of the top of my board? I got wax all over it when I was scraping and now it's a pain to get if off. I don't want scape it off because it might damage the sheen?

1. Dont put that much wax next time
2. Scrape harder
3. Scrape for a longer amount of time
4. Scrape like you have never before

Hey guys i have a brand new board I'll be taking onto an airplane. Is just the cover enough? I have a cover like this:



Is it enough? Anybody ever brought a board on an airplane? How do they treat it?

So... I got this kit. Figured having separate carrying case for all the tools besides the iron would come in handy vs the ultimate kit that stores the iron in the case as well.



My main question here is- whats the best temperature for the iron when waxing? I figured too low and it may not open up those pores and too high will kill them.

I waxed my wood last night and pretty much tried about 110* setting. Melted wax very fast, got the board very warm (could still touch it just fine right after wax layer cooled from being liquid), else the operation seemed to go just fine. Scraped everything off afterwards, used the polishing pad the kit came with.

to set the iron temp, turn it up till just before the wax starts smoking. Smoking wax=bad. There is no set temperature because all waxes are different, so experiment till you get it just under smoking. do not use the melted wax that was smoking on your board.

Does everyone melt and drip the wax on? I just rub the wax onto the board then melt it in with the iron. Most of the time I don't even have to scrape it, just buff while it's still warm and it's good to go.

you should always always have to scrape some wax off. when the pores are open in the base theyll soak up a ton of wax, then they contract when they cool and squeeze wax back out. so there should always be wax to scrape off. If there isnt then you probably arent getting the pores full like you should be, and thus just wasting time.
