What if you had the board waxed used it twice, then put away for the season? Does it need another coat?

If you used it in spring conditions, slush, corn etc chances are the wax is all gone. Those conditions are very abrassive. Its good practice to have a nice coat of wax on and don't scrape till next season. Thats what I hear and did myself.

I do all the edges and fix all the holes put a thick coat of wax, put wax over the edges (prevent rusting) and then let it sit under my bed for months

yep, you're right


also, if your base it dried out, it'll just soak up that much more wax before it rides like it should again

Even if you dont have an iron just taking a block of wax and crayoning it onto the base would do a world of help.

My NS board came in a nice plastic sheathe with zipper and some breathing holes in it...waxed it up good threw it in there and zipped it up and its sitting in the top of my closet..

Glad i kept my Boot and binding boxes too in my closet...makes it easy to pull all the screws and plates and what not away and stored till next year so they dont get lost.
