wax for east coast rider...

I live in Syracuse NY and board at Greek Peak in Cortland. As everyone knows, east coast = ice. I have decided to start waxing my own board although I have loved bringing my board to Ski Company in Syracuse and having them do it for free with my lifetime wax card. Biggest problem is that sometimes I work too late to go there and I am leaving to go boarding before they open so I need to get my own wax. Ok long story semi short...what type of wax for someone that boards in my area should I get? I was looking at this... http://www.ems.com/catalog/product_detail_square.jsp?PRODUCT<>prd_id=84552444 2595135&emssrcid=GoogleBase but I honestly have absolutely no idea. All I know is that I want wax with fluoro in it because of Snowolf's sticky post. Other than that CLUELESS. Any and all help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Not sure if it matters, but, my base is sintered 4000

Yeah man I dont get too picky with wax because the conditions out here are going to waste it quick. It's more important to keep it waxed, so something cheap that you can apply often is going to be better than something expensive that you only apply once in awhile. I usually buy sticks of wax from my local shop so I don't have any market wax to recommend but def dont go wasting your money.

If you can, look for KUU waxes. They're pretty awesome (local Canadian Company too), recommended by a lot of people. I bought a multi-pack at the beginning of last year that has waxes for all three temp ranges, but I really only use the medium and cold temp waxes.

It was like $15 and its lasted me all year last year, and probably for another month or two this season. I wax after everyday on the hill

i use KUU or Swix, if im going away for a few days i'll take my iron and stuff with me so if it goes from -8 to +5 i can just rewax accordingly... generally though i just use the universal wax, i forget what temp its rated for... just read what the package say or buy the combo kit with the 3 different temp ratings.
generally what i do is buy the combo pack and one large stick of universal and it lasts me the year.

When I lived out in Colorado and worked at a shop and had what seemed like infinite about of time to wax my board, I would use Purl racing wax which worked great. We ordered a ton and I ended up getting a couple bricks of various temps, but if anyone is looking for some really great wax, Purl Racing is some good stuff.

No difference between ski and board wax?
