Default Cleaning the board before riding

So I just did my 1st wax job on mine & my kids boards and it just occurred to me, we drive 4+ hours to ski and our gear is strapped on roof-racks. By the time I get to the mountain, my prestinely cleaned & waxed board now has a fresh coat of road grime.

Should I be concerned about this? Is there a good way to clean off the bottom that won't effect the fresh wax-job?

Not at all! relax. not going to be a problem. If you must, just wipe the base with a cloth so as not to inbed any grime when you are riding on the snow... but seriously don't worry about it. Wiping the base with a cloth won't have any affect as the wax is IN the base structure...you are stressing about nothing... just wipe em down.

Why spend 50 cents on a cloth when you have a perfectly useful pair of gloves?
