no that;s not true. DC boards are special.

BurtonAvenger Structurn is great till you get a core shot then you fill it and get a stone grind. It's nothing spectacular and honestly it's a gimmick. Rocker makes a board faster too then again taping sand bags to your tip and tail give you more speed as well so why don't we start that trend? Wax as normal.

No, it's a gimmick to get you to buy the board, it sets you apart. Just wax as normal, if the wax gets in the dimples it will eventually come out of the dimples. Will the average snowboarder notice the dimples? Probably not.

Nivek Well it's not a gimmick. But yes you just wax and scrape as normal. Any of the extra in the dimples will just kinda rub off in a couple runs.
