Question what kind of wax

Hey I just bought a 2010/2011 K2www and not sure what wax to use. I know they aren't boards meant to go fast but I would like to get wax that would hopefully get the speed up a little bit. Thanks for your help.

id say just get any wax for what the conditions are. Its all about proper preparation and finishing.

Everyone has their favorite brands but in reality just about any all temperature wax will do.

Frequent waxing will keep your board gliding smooth more than a specific brand will. To really eek out every bit of speed you'd have to pair the right temp wax with the right snow conditions. That to me is a bit overkill for just having fun on the hill, but some do enjoy it as part of the setup to an epic day of boarding.

I've had good results with Swix CH waxes , used Holmenkol for storage,it was inexpensive.
Started out this season with Toko S3 red.
With the Swix CH I found that if you could perfectly match the wax to the conditions,carrying speed through the flat sections was no problem.
