scottb7 me thinks hot scrape is bs. just wax, scrape, brush, every once in a while. "don't scrape til you are about to ride". what is the bs about wax drying out? you crazy? Yeah, like in what a hundred years?

My advice: spend more time riding and less time tinkering with your shit (gloves, pants, board, bindings, coat) pretending you are a snowboarder.

My view of waxing is: just keep it simple, wax on, scrape, and texture. Nothing too fancy.
I think you missed a key step....

Redline Hot scraping is for removing all the imbedded shit from your base. If you didn't re-wax and scrape when it cooled i have no doubt it rode like shit till you waxed it again proper.

poutanen People overthink the wax. Wax it, scrape, texture, then it's ready to go when you're ready to go!
