Alright, in the middle of a snowstorm i went out and bought some wax and a scraper.

Its snowed about 20 CM so far where i live, but tommorow im going to a hill that really sucks for new snow because theres not a single ungroomed area so by tommorow it will jsut be normal hardpack, but i dont have a choice. (im 15 and do a program that takes you up every saturday).

Anyway, ive put the wax on my board but i havent scraped it off yet. Will scrape in 20 minutes.

So now ive scraped off the wax, but is it bad that there are two small patches that look different from the rest.

Also, how hard should i scrape, ive scraped mutliple times with power and im pretty sure ill mostly be riding hard pack tommorow.

Scrape until nothing else comes off. With a plastic scraper you literally cannot scrape too much. If it is your first time I would bet there is still quite a bit of wax on there.

You can polish with a scotch brite to smooth out the patches. They're normal. But if you don't have one then just run it. You won't feel them and the snow will do the same.

I find bikini waxes the most efficient but also very painful, ps dont put that shit on your balls. If you cant find a hot Brazilian to do it even better, if you dont mind me asking whats your boyfriends name?

when your a man sometimes you wear stretchy pants in your room just for fun

I use a metal ptex scraper. Much easier than the plexi ones. Also, dont put too much wax on. Too much leads to a never ending scraping session.

As of now, i can still feel the wax, but ive scraped it basically as hard as i could, plus im assuming that the hill im going to tommorow is gonna groom over the 25 cm of new snow so should it be good?

Also, theres 2 small penny size cirlces of wax that just dont seem to come off. Wat do?

Directly under the bindings? Thats normal if you dont loosen your bindings before every wax.
