Rain-X on topsheet

has anybody ever tried this yet? Putting rain-x or waxing it with car wax on the topsheet of their board to keep the snow off. I like it when my board doesnt have all this snow and ice stuck on it.

or you could just brush it off with your hand. Unless your getting 5 lb ice chunks on your board does it really affect the performance?

no its just an aesthetics thing. i just find it annoying when there is a layer of ice caked on your board that you cant wipe off.

You could just glue a bunch of handwarmers to your top sheet, melt the snow right off.

No way man. It doesn't matter at all how good (or shitty) you are at riding if your board is all jacked up with snow on the topsheet. How will anyone see your sick graphics with small "core" company stickers on it?!?!?!?!
