Default Waxing a DC board

Hi lads,

I've just bought the DC PBJ, took it for a spin, sick board for rails for sure!
Only one concern, how do you wax and scrape a base like that? It's got these little dents in it wich is supposed to be like a golfball and make you go faster, but if I wax my board isn't all of the wax gonna get in those dents and if I scrape it how do I get it out of there? :')

It's a gimmick, just wax as normal.

Well it's not a gimmick. But yes you just wax and scrape as normal. Any of the extra in the dimples will just kinda rub off in a couple runs.

Oh cool. You can quote dictionaries. Structurn works. It makes a board faster, longer. A guy I used to ride with liked sticky bases and was annoyed with his last year Kooley SantaCruz cause it had structurn and the thing wouldn't slow down for him even after a few days, on man made snow. Structurn. It works.

No, I was just telling you what a gimmick was. You said it wasn't a gimmick, but it obviously is. I didn't say it didn't work.

You said it's a gimmick because it's doesn't work right??? WHy else would you say that? Doesn't make sense if you aren't inferring that it doesn't work.

No, it's a gimmick to get you to buy the board, it sets you apart. Just wax as normal, if the wax gets in the dimples it will eventually come out of the dimples. Will the average snowboarder notice the dimples? Probably not.

After a few full tunes, Structurn is gone. Sure it works, but it has to be there to work. And yes you have to wax DC boards. Wax-impregnated bases still need wax; they are not "endless-supply-of-wax" bases.
