Default Wax not spreading under bindings

So I'm currently waxing my board and plan to hot scrape it as a means of cleaning the base. However, I'm having an issue with the area directly below my bindings. The wax doesn't seem to be melting/spreading there at all. I can still see the little circles from when I dripped. I assume this is due to the bindings pulling up on that part of the base, but I just got the board this past season so I'm surprised the effect would be that dramatic already. Granted I have had my bindings on and not loosened since my last ride. The board is a Horrorscope which has reverse camber if anyone think that would make a difference.

I guess my question is should I just keep going over that area or am I screwed lol?

It's normal. Just work it in. The binding grommets are absorbing the heat from the iron faster than the p-tex.

just keep going over it, and also, make sure to take off your bindings when you wax

Alright. So I'm worried about my board overheating right now. Should I wait for the wax to cool, take off my bindings, then continue?

unless you leave it in one spot for a while or take a very long time, you don't need to worry about overheating

I have the horrorscope and I never had that problem. You may have screwed your binding screws too tight and created a bump on your base. If that's the case, just get your plastic scraper and scrape it til it's flat.
