Waxing "your stick"

Well, i happen to think im pretty good at that.

What im saying is i want to be able to wax a snowboard(mine) and do it well. So before i fly off the handle and start buying crap. Is there a particular wax i should consider since i also like to ride rails and boxes? Maybe wax that holds on to the board better or something?? Or will i be ok with a simple cold wax (since i am on the ice.. i mean east coast)

Thanks in advance. =)

personally i use all temp wax. I find it works just fine at whiteface (or iceface, if you will) when its freeeezing and for when its slushy. im not sure if there is a particular wax for riding boxes rails etc but all temp wax is usually my go to. i use oneballjay wax usually too.

All temp is a good bet.. seeing you're from the East using a cold weather wax isn't really gonna benefit you cause of the variability in conditions 'round here. As for a brand, we use Hertel Race Wax in the shop. Stuff is great.. a lil pricey... but i think its worth it

toko wax has a pretty good write up on general board tuning, a little more focused on racing but a good read

I've got one ball jay all temp and it works perfect. I will experiment with other all-temp waxes to see how they all compare. Doing that will help you find what you like. Some are harder to scrape than others and some don't last as long as others. You'll know what you prefer by trying different all temps. Stick with all-temp.
