Excess wax?

Okay, so I waxed my board the other night and tried to get the wax off the best I could but there are still some patches where there is enough wax to make it a little grabby if I run my hand over it. Will this burn off when it gets ridden?

Oh and any tips for getting wax on the tips and edges? I found that to be slightly difficult.

Eh, I don't worry to terribly much about it. As for the tip, I don't worry about that either, unless you ride on your tip/tail alot. As for the edges, you just gotta dribble a thicker bead on there, spread it around, then move into the middle.

Yeah, it'll come off. I remember my first real season riding my friend had the storage coat of wax on the board I inherited from him and I didn't know you were supposed to scrape it off lol. It probably took almost half the day but it ended up right where it was supposed to be. Just ride it and I think you'll be fine.

Oh, and I also heard (here I think) that you should wax a brand new board several times so that you can get wax deeper into the board and get a more even coverage. Is this plausible?

If you're using a wide scraper I would turn it 90 degrees and use the narrow end to scrape the patches of excess wax.
