HugestRiderEver Learn how to wax your own board. It's nothing magical. You'll save money. You'll keep your board in better order because you're forced to get close and personal to check it out. If there's damage, you'll see it. A shop may not tell you. For the same reasons, learn how to sharpen your own edges. You'll need a special tool for that.

baldylox It doesn't matter. The idea simple. Things in nature go from high to low concentrations. In the winter, humidity is generally very low, so that would really be the time when your board is in the most danger unless you live in the desert. The wax just creates a physical barrier to trap the moisture in the board. I personally have never seen the humidity in my place get below 50%. I'm also not convinced the ptex base is permeable enough for moisture to escape so I don't worry about it. I typically have wax on my board anyway.

Kesserendrel To the OP:

Dude, watch Snowolf's videos, buy a Dakine waxing kit and a couple bars of wax, and do it yourself. It takes 45 minutes and is easy. The first few times just use the plastic scrape until you get comfortable. I had my board waxed preseason at a shop and they did a terrible job scraping it, so after than I watched the vids and said "That's it??" and started doing it myself.

It's better than nothing, but personally I don't want to have to do a hot scrape and rewax to start the next year. Just use cheap snowboard wax that will get you thru a couple of pre-season days next year.

earl_je Paraffin wax is a really cheap wax readily available anywhere. Iron it on when you're storing your board, then when the next season gets here, hot scrape it off then iron on regular snowboard wax. I would think paraffin wax would just rub off with one run even if you leave it on. No, it wont damage your base.

BlackBlue55 Bumping this to the front, since it seems to have fallen off of the radar.

BlackBlue55 Is paraffin wax safe to use on a board? I've never heard of this before, and I don't think it's mentioned anywhere on Tognar ski tuning tools, ski wax and waxing tools, snowboard wax, and Ski repair, waxing, and tuning advice. I would have to guess that no one would want cheap wax melted into his or her base. Do all of you who are using paraffin wax rub it into the base or iron it into the base?
