I think it all depends on the tech in the store at the time. I brought my board in years ago and had them wax it because I was in a bind and not at home. I'm pretty sure he did one of those crap belt waxes. After that, I brought my board in to the same Sportcheck a day later and there was a different guy there who knew a heck of alot more about what he was doing. Offered to sharpen my edges, said he was going to do a full hand wax and even fixed by toe binding.
So I'd suggest going in and talking to the guy first and finding out exactly what he is going to do and if he knows anything about snowboarding himself. If they know what they are doing, I don't see why you wouldn't take advantage of a free wax. Just don't give him your board if he doesn't know anything about snowboards and just knows how to operate the skate sharpener. lol

right okay. so it's just a superficial job rather than a thorough one.
alright then. i'm just gonna pay for a thorough one when i go in december, cuz i have a feeling it'll be more expensive getting an edge sharpener, wax iron, and wax to do it myself. plus i have to learn.

|pharcyde||iv never been to sportchek for any snowboard gear, but id assume the staff generally isnt very knowledgeable concerning snowboards. if anyone on staff did know a lot, it would probably just be them and not a reflection of any training the store gave them. without good training i dont imagine the staff would be able to give a good wax or tune.|
