do you have a specific reason to want to wax, or is it just that you know "you should"? Nobody wants their base to dry out, but at the same time, it's a bit of a hassle waxing it frequently.
I'll wax my board before a two week trip, and then leave it alone. It's the Lib Tech t.rice, and the base is pretty dame fast, without a fresh wax.
So that's why I ask - I don't notice my base being slow or anything like that, so I don't wax it more than once per trip. As for damage, I'm more likely to knack it on a rail, tree, rock or something like that.
If you wax it regularly, are you using an all round, all-temp wax? I'm no wax expert, but I've asked around in a few service-shops, and the line I get is that if you use the wrong type of wax for the conditions, it's worse than not waxing it at all...
