Default Dry Base

What happens if you do not wax your base for awhile and your base "drys up"?

Not much besides that your board will be sloooooow. You might start seeing hairs come off the base. The best thing to do is just wax it.

You will get off the lift and basically stick to the snow, i had it happen once last year since i forgot to wax and i couldnt even skate off the lift more than a foot at a time without it slowing and catching and nearly throwing me over.

lol. That explains it. 1st time out with my wife... At the end of the day, we were taking a run back to the basecamp. Her board was caked with snow and she couldn't go anywhere. I sat there trying to scrap all the snow off. Go figure, it was a rental...
