f00bar Good to hear. My sons is exactly the same way and it makes sense as I know I didn't do a great job waxing them. I need a new scraper, all mine are for skis and a bit narrow.

I will post after pics later today.
Welcome to the world of extruded base. It's a common thing, what you where scratching off was not wax but microscopic ptexfiber hairs that form on the edges. It usually unavoidable but the process is sped up when you don't maintain the base and continually ride without brushing, waxing & scraping.

tannersdad Before and after pics:


After a good brushing, most of the white disappeared or turned to gray.


After one coat of wax and a scrape it looks almost new.


Turns out it was just excess wax, Brushing it took away most of the "white" areas. Thanks for all the replies.

Extruded is fine as long as you wax regularly, there are really no pores so it loses wax super fast. 90% of the time a wax will make it look new and as long as you regularly wax it you'll never see it again.
If you are talking about the board in the picture, I can assure you it was waxed before our trip. Along with my board, my wife,s board and my other 2 sons. I change my oil every 3000 miles too.

Yours just looks like a freshly waxed board that someone rode the edges on.

they might be owned by Disney, but it's still star wars.

Or we can keep going and turn this into Anchorman newroom battle royal. But I claim the trident.
