MnBoarder763 Ya im pretty much as clean as it can get manually.

Hope this Swix CH10 wax is good for the Spring Colorado snow..

Veccster I hit mine with goo gone (citrus cleaner) and a green scrubie. I figured the rest was permanent but I'll try the wax job as well.

It was covered with that shit!

Penguin i hate getting crack cocaine on my base.

tooscoops a graphite wax works well for keeping extra crap off your base. its all about keeping the extra shit from bonding to what you are riding... once embedded not much i can help woth though.

i say clean it as best you can, then use graphite wax... you get some shit, but not much you can do there... the graphite helps to prevent added shitty crap getting built up on you base...

thats my technical term.

MnBoarder763 Ch10 had a range if 32-50 degrees F. Going to Copper and ABasin in 3 weeks.. The tune/wax guy said CH10 should be good for the spring CO snow.. I also have dakine nitrous all temp wax... Ya think I should use that instead?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated..

CH10???

Whats the temp range on that? like 60-40 degrees??

Even in the spring time, i use 30-20 degree wax. It'll slow you down, but its more durable, even with all that dirt and crap

Edit: unless your using CH10 as the over layer

john doe Hot wax scraping is the best way to get dirt out. You basicly have to get heat in to melt all the wax and have enough new wax to delute the dirty wax and bring the dirt up. I bought my board from Cali on ebay and it was horribly dirty when I got it. The first round of hot scraping came out black.

The problem is that you rode over that stuff... meaning that it was jammed into the base of the board.
I heated the board up with my iron and also heated some leftover wax on the base and pulled the wax off with a towel before it cooled... Took out alot of dirt... So it worked.. Still kinda dirty but not as filthy as before...

Im going to hotwax it and pull the wax right away.. I noticed the wax was getting dirtywhen it melted with my iron.. so that should help.
