I'm not sure if this was specifically answered,
but how do you get the factory wax off your board?

don't.


just wax right over the factory job.

you could go ride it one time, that would get rid of it.

Sorry, I didn't know. This is my first time purchasing a new board. I was reading through the threads about maintenance/wax, and I got the impression that you had to remove whatever stuff was on your board first before applying new wax.

So I can just go ahead with the normal process of waxing without doing anything beforehand?

New boards come already waxed, so just take it for a ride. I would wait a few times before waxing it again.

yea the only real reason to try to remove stuff from your base is if it gets really dirty. sintered bases will just soak and soak wax and get faster over time. the factory job is barely going to penetrate (its just a roll-on most likely). you can still follow steps for deep soaking if you wish.

i'm sure it's been discussed...but i just opened this thread and it's 36 pages in...."how often should i wax my board"? is there a generic rule of thumb or just whenever you feel your board is sticking to the snow?

Question Wax job

Hello lads,

I recently purchased my new snowboard and decided I wanted to wax it myself. Checked all the how-to's, watched snowwolfs guides on it, etc. But I'm having doubts whether I did it right, so I hope you can help me out. Since I only board on trips, I haven't been able to test how it rides yet.

My two main worries are that 1) after waxing (before scraping) the surface looks much more 'sloppy' than you'll see in all the vids and 2) my scrapings are powder and not the kind of shavings you see in the vids.

I used an all temperature wax (magic potion cake wax) and followed the normal routine: clean, drip the wax, iron it in, let it cool (30 min.), scrape, buff. Iron wasn't too hot (no smoke at least), but the surroundings were quite cold (near zero degrees celsius, 32 degrees fahrenheit)

Have you guys/girls got any indication if I did anything wrong and if so, what that could be? Maybe the outside temperature, properties of the wax or anything else. Thnx for the effort!

Left: after waxing, Right: after scraping. No picture of the scraping powder unfortunately.
