I almost always use an all-temp, although sometimes a cold wax during the heart of the season. Lately I've been sticking to fluoro waxes like OBJ Viper and Dakine Indy. Have also had great luck with hydrocarbons like OBJ 4x4, Dakine Nitrous. I also have some cheap Demon hydrocarbon that I've been using for off-season storage and hot scrapes.

Wax on, wax off. I always use Sex Wax. It's cheap, it works, and it sounds kinky. Who could want anything more?

Isn't that surf wax that's made to stick? What does it have in it to glide?

They make a Snow Wax variety. Being a surfer first, and loyal SexWax user, I planned to use it, but when I tried to investigate, they were very unhelpful. I use Saucer Wax, which is specifically formulated for the Colorado Rockies. NS fanboys can enjoy even more excitement as it is what their boards leave the factory rolled with.

Yeah, they make a snow wax and in my experience it has worked very well. It comes in a few different varieties, with a rub-on and a melt-on application. I have used both types and like I said, it has worked very well. I have always used Zog's on my surfboard, so it seemed natural to use it on my snowboard as well. As Snowklinger said, they don't give out any information on what the hell is in it, at least I haven't been able to find any specs, but hey, I have been using the shit for years and it works.
