WOndering if anyone waxes a new board. Specifically, if u use a temp specific wax if you know you are venturing out into extreme conditions with a new board. i have a new board i'll be taking to Revy in a week and temps are (at times) looking like -15. wondering if my factory will hold. Not too worried though as I don think i'll be hitting many ice patches like we get out east.
NS (and almost everyone else) does not hot wax a board in the factory. They mannually apply a rub-on liquid (in just seconds). I wouldn't ride on an old board with only that wax job. I certainly wouldn't ride on a new ($500+) one that way either.
I am not knocking them either. It is a light base coating. Even they would tell you to wax it before actually using it.
