Default Base Prep Wax and a New Board

Hey people,

I've searched and found that.. yes, you should wax your board when you buy it new.

My question now is, should I use base prep layer first (applied 3 times) or just straight to a basic hydrocarbon wax? And if yes, should I then remove all the factory wax (hot scrape/base cleaner method)?

Also an unrelated question.... If I were to wax my board normally, is it bad if I DO NOT SCRAPE THE WAX OFF for a few days?

Thanks for the help people

Hey Swizz:

Just depends upon how much "love" you want to bestow upon your new ride. You don't have to. Select your fav all temp wax, maybe go so far as to do two cycles and then away you go!!!!

No harm done leaving the wax on for a few days. In fact, it is a great way to protect your board and come the end of the season, you should put a coat on and leave it on for the summer.

People over think waxing way too much. It's a new board, give her a good wax, scrape, polish and ride! No need to prep any more than a soft cloth or a brass brush for the vast majority of boards. If done right the first time, adding another coat is just a waste of wax.
