Edge and Wax

I am going snowboarding tomorrow and since this is my first time out for the year, I want my board waxed and edged. I called up a place that does waxing and edging to see how long it would take. They said it would take 15 minutes. I have looked it up online and saw that you need to let the wax rest for 30 minutes. They call it a "quick wax and edge" so I am not sure what they do to make it take 15 minutes. Is it correct that places can do it in 15 minutes or are they trying to get me to go there more.

Sounds about right considering they have their equipment set up already. I'd imagine the longest part would be having the wax cool off but even then, it takes just a few minutes before they scrape it.

only takes a few minuts for the wax to cool to room temperature. I'm not surprised that someone who's experienced could do the whole thing in 15 mins.

With the quick wax, they're probably not doing a stone grind for the base.

sounds a little short to me. it takes wax alone about 15-20 minutes to dry. then you still gotta scrape it which takes about 5 minutes, then edge sharpening takes a few minutes

They could be using a belt wax system like we have here in our shop... it literally takes 10 seconds to wax. Now we have hot waxing by hand available but thats going to be more expensive and take more time.. but I don't think it would take too long.

Very few shops hand tune anymore..

It's totally fine I used to crank em out in that time span unless I got Johnny Racer that wanted me to do miraculous things to his base.
