Wax and ride. waiting is missed time on the slopes, oh and it won't affect the wax either.

you don't need to wait a day after waxing... spread it, wait 20 min, scrape it,buff it... ride it.

Usually, I use the beer rule.

Drink a beer while the iron heats up.

Spread wax (need both hands for this... Unless you have a foam dome?)

Iron wax (one handed... 1 more beer)

Let wax sit (finish off 6 pack)

Get another 6 pack.

Make someone else scrape it. (While drinking your 6 pack)

I have a plastic bag handy and try to gather up the shavings as I scrape and dump them in the bag. Not 100% effective, but nobody cares about some wax shavings on the back porch where I live. Eh, and it's biodegradable anyway

I would love to use this rule, except I don't drink beer I am responsible for the waxing and maintenance of 3 boards, only one of which is mine XD

I don't think there is a way to keep the shavings from going everywhere. I just push the shavings away from me as I go so I don't step on them. Try not to get it under your feet and grind it into the floor. Then I just sweep it up.

if you crayon it on then iron over the wax and spread there is not that much to scrape off. Then use a clean brush and pan into a bag or and get a vacuum to suck it up.
