My boards a channel board so i figured that i wouldnt have to loosen but they are right under the binding. Thanks RJRJRJRJ

PS: is lib tech banana wax a good all temp wax?
Also if i just flat base a hard pack run tommorow, will that handle the extra wax?

Also also, if im racing on tuesday should i wax it again?

Also, also, also riding hardpack how often should i wax my board. Ive seen some saying everyday and some saying every 5 days.

i thing i did, keep in mind is really ghetto but works!

i only found one clothes iron in my house and didnt want to ruin it so heres the solution


WRAP A SHEET OF TIN FOIL AROUND THE BOTTOM!

make sure you tuck the edges and it only touches the metal, i did this before i got a dedicated snowboard iron and it worked like a charm!

If you buy a dedicated snowboard IRON, see if you can get one with a digital readout. The dial on my dakine works but seems a little cheap.

Just finished laying some Hertel Super hot sauce on my board, came upstairs to find this post.

I recommend getting a brass brush for cleaning/prepping base, a big brick of hot sauce, a nylon hand held brush for texturing, some scotch brite pads for finer texture and then the horsehair for the ultimate shine. Works like a charm and that hertel is awesome. I think their special ingredient to make the board shine and so slick is oil of the stomach of a penguin.

Wish i had the spare cash for all that stuff, but im making due with A 20 1o year old iron, Some banana wax, and a scraper.

But do you think that even if my boards not quite buffed and theres still a little bit of wax that should be scraped but just wont come off, it will be fine because im riding hardpack tommorow.

You will be fine. Try to run a scotchbrite pad and buff buff buff. They are dirt cheap.

Yah bud your fine. Don't worry about the little pieces.
No one needs a digital read out on their iron. Just melt on let it cool scrape off. Unless you're boarderX. I

You don't need it but it would be nice. I didn't realize he is a young gun. And I have never priced out digital ones.
