Rub on wax goes off as easily as it rubs on. Just do a heated wax every three to four rides -- two if you're doing a ton of jibbing. That's my rule I follow. I'm sure there's more knowledgeable tuning ppl here that can better answer it.

Only reason I asked was because I don't YET feel like getting some crappy iron and doing that whole jazz. Knowing me, I will sooner than later, but yea. My old board, was NEVER ever waxed since I got it and it lived through 2 of my seasons + god knows how many before me just fine.

So what's this about a trip to Blue Knob? Went back a few pages, but couldn't find any real info. Maybe I didn't look far enough.

Also, hello neighbors!

Blue Knob is just my word of mouth lol, but I mentioned it in a few posts on the past page or two. I pointed you here just in general, to chat with us locals a bit more.

Ohhhhh. I thought you had like a set group trip going on. How many people do you have going so far? I've planned some group trips before, so I wouldn't mind putting something together in the future.

Oh yeah. Also, any Virginia riders who do street style hit me up. I'm trying to find some spots and I'm also a journo who wants to do some photo shoots/and article on it.

You can get an iron, scraper, and some wax for about 50 bucks total. Not that much because it's a one time investment, plus you can wax your buddies boards too. Check out the tips section of this form, and there's a sticky of one of the moderator's how to videos for waxing. It really is worth it.

Yea, like I said, I'll get the stuff sooner than later. If I find a cheap square pad iron, even better.

100 percent guarantee I'm the only one wearing it.
Nope. I have the exact same jacket lol

In fact, I think I saw you at liberty on Sat.
