Default Guide to Waxing pt. 1

If ur all about speed, new to the sport or just curious about waxing techniques, look no further.
Yes there is one thread abt this, but i will get into more detail.

If u r like me and like the feeling of going fast even on flats, then u should wax every 2 trips.
If u just want to keep ur board quenched and not dry, then u should do it every 4-8 trips depending on the conditions.

Remember that fake snow WILL eat away ur wax faster and it is ideal to use a colder wax.
If u use all temp wax, then remember that it will not be as durable as temp specific wax.

For simplicity, u have 2 types of waxes...

1- Hydrocarbons, general purpose wax that can be temp specific
2- Fluoro carbons, more durable and faster than hydrocarbons and r temp specific

Fluorocarbons come in 3 variations: Lo, Hi and 100% fluoro

Lo Fluoro is used for low humidity snow
Hi is used for high humidity snow ( where there is a lot of moisture in the snow )
100% fluoro is the most expensive and used primarily for racing.
Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
