Wouldn't beeswax be way to soft and plyable? I wouldn't last one run.

Idk but iirc, beeswax was used for grippage for xc skis recipies. It seems like beeswax would be too soft for slippage. Apparently 80-90 percent of board/ski wax is paraffin and the other 10-20 percent are additives, i.e., hardeners, surfactants, dye, perfume, teflon, detergent, molybdemum, graphite, gallium and ect. Been thinking/researching about doing my own recipe since got 9 boards and a pair of skis to keep going and running out of a big block of ski wax that was found at a thrift store for $2 a few years back.
