First time waxing board by myself...
Hey, I've been riding for 5 years or so but have always relied on shops to tune up my board. I decided this year to learn how to wax/sharpen myself but have a few questions. I just finished waxing my board following the 3 part video guide on youtube that was stickied above this thread.
My question is, how do you know when you have gotten enough excess wax off of the base? I've scraped over and over again with a plastic scraper and it doesn't seem to get much more wax off. But when I scrape with my nails I can still get some off. I've also used the Brillo pad repeatedly but it still seems to be picking up wax dust. Should I continue buffing it with the Brillo until there is no more wax dust? Also, if I don't end up getting enough wax off will it cause a huge problem on the slopes? When I run my finger nails over the base fat-ways I can feel the little ridges in the base, is that a good indicator that enough wax has been removed? Also, I can't seem to get a sweet reflection like the guy in the video, is that just because I'm not using the felt? Any help would be much appreciated.
