waxing before summer storage

ive read that you should wax but do not scrape. ive also read that you should scrape.

in another post of mine someone brought up a great point that the wax can oxidize if left on. what do you guys do when the season ends and you store your board? do you wax and leave it on or wax then scrape then store

wax but don't scrape. Only the outer layer of the wax will dry out, and when you scrape it off next year, then you will have a fresh coat of wax thats been unexposed. If you scrape now, then it will dry out by next year and you will have to rewax it

Please people it's only march, don't get me all depressed and thinking about putting my board away already! Plenty of spring riding left, especially where I live (Sunshine open until late may)

But yeah, definitely wax 'er up and store it in a dry, clean place. And give it a big hug before you put it away.

Well unfortunately for me, and i guess anyone else in the poconos area, can say our season is pretty much done. Checking the weather channel they are calling for 50 degree temps for the rest of the month .

Man, I feel for you guys. It's arguably the best time of the year around here!! The parks are HUGE and the snow's still falling. I'll be riding untill June or July.

When the time comes, I do leave the wax on my base without scraping for the summer months.
