its naturely known that snowboarding wax is better than candle max , but i was asking cuase the nearest shop that has wax is at the slopes , and when i go snowboarding i don't want to waste time waxing my board so i thought of doing it with candle wax here at home..

I personally wouldn't recommend using candle wax, I doubt that would work since there's chemicals that are put into snowboard and ski waxes that give it its lubricating qualities with the snow.

Buy generic wax in bulk online and wax your board yourself. It's way cheaper and that wax will last way longer than a wax you'd get at the resort.

I just got a crazy idea! What if you were to take a block of snowboarding wax and drill a hole in it to put a wick. So when you burn the wick it would melt the wax! Wouldnt that work better than a regular candle but just as good as a hot iron. It would be if you went somewhere without electicity but you had some matches! (JUST AN IDEA)

Im not sure how much waxing costs near you, but a waxing around here or the local hills is about 15 bucks a pop. so buying some wax for 10, even if you have to invest 100 for an iron, you'd still have your money back in 11 waxes, so say...22 trips?
Thats not bad, and it would depend on how much wax $10 gets you. I'm really considering waxing my own from now on. and maybe even my friends'. Wait and see. No point for this season, since it's almost over anyways.

i'm not sure if i can post a link here, but i saw a snowboard iron on e-bay going for about $20-25 (shipping included) which seems pretty prevalent.

in this little kit i bought a scraper and a thing of one ball jay wax(?) for $10. normal price was $15 i think. i think my friend tried it for the first time and only used up maybe a cm.

should hit up a $1 store to see if they have any cheap stuff.
