Magnetraction and/or dry base slowing my board down ?
Hi there, I just purchased a supposedly brand new Roxy Envi C2BTX last weekend and took it out on its first run yesterday.
Overall, it handled tricky ( hidden icy patches) really well and was great in the powder around trees, but the board seemed to slow down a great deal when on flats and in slushy slow. It felt like it was pulling me back; not too much fun.
I noticed that the base looked really dry after this one day of riding; when I bought the board it had dry patches along the edges already, so the shop offered a free hot wax.
Could this dry base be the reason for the board to slow down a lot in the slush and flats, or is that due to the BTX?
Any thoughts on this?
Thanks in advance!!
