Default White Edges on Board

Alright...I got a question. I took my board to get waxed and then went boardin, after a few go arounds I looked at the bottom of my board and the edges where white.

I was wondering how to get the white off the edges. I took it to a store here in town that waxes them but they didn't fix anything. It looks like its just too much wax but I wanted to get an opinion!

Thank you!!!! -Reagan

I would assume the edges are white bc they are dry and since you have pressured the edges moreso than the tips, middle etc they are going to dry out/wear the wax off faster. Depending on snow conditions and board itself the edges might get white after one day or five... Just learn to wax at home and maintain it as needed. It is fine to ride.

Can you scrape the White stuff off with ya fingernail?????

If so, too much wax and no dramas!!!!! Just ride it!!!!!

If not, they either haven't done a deep wax and its dried out fast, or its a relatively new board that'll take time to hold wax!!!!! (Found this was the case with both my sintered Lib and YES)

As Fewd said above, wax it yaself!!!!!

I can't really get it off with my fingernail. I tried to use my wax scraper which got some off but not much. I am taking it today to get it waxed and cleaned up a bit. I will be doing it on my own sometime soon, just gotta get my money together!

Hi guys, was wondering how often do you sharpen edges.

I live in east coast and conditions aren't great we had so little snow this year, so a lot of stuff icy.

I have gnu carbon credit 2013. Last Saturday when I was doing some steep diamonds sometimes I had to stop completely because I was scared that my board wont hold an edge. It wasnt fun at all, a few times board just slipped right under me.

I rode that board for about 20 days, so not sure what's happening.

As needed. But in general once a season, unless a smashed an edge against a rock

A middle of the road diamond stone run along the edges, just between the boots, will help with hold when you need it. I look at my edges when I wax, so every 2-3 days. A little edge love on hard icy days will help a lot.

I was wondering how you would repair dents in the top of the board just above th side wall. Will my board rot? Should I epoxy it? If so with what?

Slap a bit of epoxy on that, should be fine. Possibly marine epoxy? Someone else will chime in...
