Alright so Ive bought 2 boards prior to buying the one I just picked up. A no-namer and a Salomon drift rocker. When I got those two I felt like there was no/not enough of a wax on the base so I had them hot waxed before use.
Just got my Rossignol JDUB and there seems to be a good finish. I want to know does anyone insist on a wax before use or is it dependent on what the factory puts on it?
I could care less if Travis Rice personally waxed my board before it got to me, I will still wax it myself. Maybe it is just me, but I really enjoy the time spent waxing my board the night before the next days shredding, and the fact that I know it was done up to my standards.
