glad to have a husband who waxes the boards frequently if temperatures are changing. To have the warm wax on cold days and vice versa sucks.

Summer: stored in a board bag under the bed, without wax.

Waxing for storage never crossed my mind. Now I see why.

Agreed. I was snowboarding yesterday in wet sticky spring like snow and I haven't waxed my board since December. I had to hand wax warmer wax so I can glide pass them non wax boarders/skiers. Jimminy cricket never knocked on their brains to give them common sense

Prior to me buying an iron, etc... yes, I never really waxed it before storage, or often during the season....

so... after every day I ride, I wax.

Just before I pack up my board for the season, I do a hot wax-scrape to get my base clean... and to use up what's left of the wax, a quicky layer of wax on the board for storage.

Not too concerned with waxing my edges.... since my board has stainless steel edges

I wax my board every couple of times out. My sintered boards obvz need more wax. It makes quite a difference.

And yes, non-waxers should steer clear.
