Wax During Off-Season
 
I'm not sure if I am ready to pack up my board for the off-season just yet, but I have a question about waxing your board before packing it away.

One of my buddies (an amazing skier) suggested I wax my board before the off-season without scrapping the wax off...leaving a thick coat of wax on the base. He said it will allow the wax to really sink in and protect the base during the offseason. Is this a good idea? Should I trust a dirty skier?

I can't see it hurting, but not sure if it will really do much. Thoughts?

In the April issue of TWS they had a write up on how to store your board. In addition to a heavy dose of warm weather wax, they recommend storing it in a cool, dry place with nothing stacked on top of it, as it could flatten your board's camber.

I hope you'd have to pile a lot more than winter cloths on a board to flatten the camber...you are probably fine.

In reply to snowolf - I think I'll just store it with the bindings off since I remove them to wax anyway. Good tip though.

No men that thing is really tight, lol. It's like if you open the bag it explodes :eek:. Plus I just realized I had the other bag on top of it for the whole summer :D.

Oh well...

I have all three of my boards (well, one is my brother's...) in a bag, and they're leaning on each other. I can't possibly imagine it losing its camber from an extra 10-15 pounds on it, especially when they support well...people.

try waxing it and you'll immediately notice that you can really fly. i wax my board after like 5 sessions and can notice a big difference. do it yourself too, its kinda fun, it's cheaper than at a shop, and you can do a better job than the people at the shop.
