brandonmkoch Truth. I have about eight bricks of hot temp wax too. But I'm headed to CO in a couple days where hopefully it'll drop below 32 degrees, and was looking to use some of my own cold wax, and even in the spring, my own hot temp wax. Everyone has their own favorite waxes right?

CheeseForSteeze That stuff is godsend when the temps go up and you start getting spring corn and eventually actual slush. It's the only way to keep speed.

brandonmkoch Yeah, sorry, should have been more specific. Graphite based wax. I wouldn't mind it, but it's a hot temp wax thats super dark and just prefer my own wax.

CheeseForSteeze wrathfuldeity already raised a question I would ask, as to what do you mean by "carbon" wax? All waxes are hydrocarbon based similar to alkanes.

Now, if you mean graphite wax (also a carbon structure) then you remove it like any other wax: through depletion, hot scrapes or citrus based board cleaning solutions or any combinations of those.

Carbon Wax Removal Question

Hey all,

Just picked up a new (to me) board. It's currently got carbon wax on it that's obviously been ridden, but the tip and tail have some excess I can scrape off. However the center is pretty dark. Any suggestions on how to get rid of the carbon wax so I can throw my own on there?

Base cleaner?

Hot Scrape with my own wax?

Wax and Ride until it sparkles again? haha
