so heres the deal, i just bought my first board here last week, its a 155 burton prime with freestyle bindings, i took it out this past friday and the hills were a little icy, the board comes pre-waxed but im wondering, when should i have it waxed again?
Certain conditions vary the perfect interim to wax, but you should do it right away and then as frequently as every time out to every 4 or 5 times out. Maintaining your own edges and base is a fun hobby and easier and cheaper than taking to the shop for tuning.
Also, at the end of the season, wax your board and then leave it on. Don't scrape it off until next year. The wax stays in the pores and helps keep your base in better condition by keeping it from drying out.
