Default Applying wax right after riding or right before

wouldnt it be advantageous to apply wax right after a riding session then leave it on until before your next ride then scrape it off?

most of my friends do it the night before they ride. i was thinking might be advantageous for the base to slap some wax on right after youre done riding but dont scrape and then scrape off before your next ride as opposed to right before. whats your take?

I don't see what the advantage would be.

wouldn't make a diffrence, but If you've ever used "Magic GOGO" wax and let it sit for a day it's a bitch to scrape off. it hardens like crazy.

having a brush collection is advantageous. but once the base cools and and the pores close and the wax hardens it will stop saturating the base with wax and all it will do is oxidize. so Id do it the night before, again brushes make a huge difference, Ive got 4 maplus brushes and they make a big difference

so would you recommended against waxing and leaving the wax on through the summer for storage due to oxidation? or would you say to wax and scrape then store

in what world do you live in that wax oxidizes at room temperature?

id wax for storage otherwise the base will dry out and if it dries out too much the base will actually shrink and can pull away from the edges and start to crack. This wont happen in one season but if a board is left over a couple of years especially in a humid environment the base will be ruined. Ive got a board that this happened to and its not pretty

you mean waxing without scraping? or just waxing period.

wax degrades if left out in open air too long. its called drying out but also referred to as oxidizing
