How to brush your board after waxing?
I have been watching some videos where they recommended brushing the snowboard after removing as much wax as possible. They also recommended using 3 different brushes, going from hard to soft.
After waxing a board, I use a steel brush to go up and down the board's length. When I notice this, I get little brownish grains, which I assume are the wax. I don't know if this is because I'm doing it wrong or not. I make small left & right strokes along the length of the board. Heck, I'm not sure if intention is to remove as much wax as possible, or trying to dress the board and create grooves. If it's the former, I think I'm doing a good job at that. But if it's the latter, I think it's probably dismal because I'm not going at it in a single stroke from tip to tail.
I then switch to a horsehair brush and do the same. Then I switch to a softer nylon brush for the last brush job.
Am I actually brushing my board incorrectly and removing too much wax to properly dress the board?
I was just under the impression that I could not remove too much wax, so didn't think what I was anything wrong with my brushing. But when I was helping my friend wax his board last night and let him make a go at the brush, he was doing it so rigorously and causing so many small wax grains that it made me wonder if what I have been doing is correct.
Thank in advance for any tips on properly waxing my board.
