Yeah, they make a snow wax and in my experience it has worked very well. It comes in a few different varieties, with a rub-on and a melt-on application. I have used both types and like I said, it has worked very well. I have always used Zog's on my surfboard, so it seemed natural to use it on my snowboard as well. As Snowklinger said, they don't give out any information on what the hell is in it, at least I haven't been able to find any specs, but hey, I have been using the shit for years and it works.

They make a Snow Wax variety. Being a surfer first, and loyal SexWax user, I planned to use it, but when I tried to investigate, they were very unhelpful. I use Saucer Wax, which is specifically formulated for the Colorado Rockies. NS fanboys can enjoy even more excitement as it is what their boards leave the factory rolled with.

rader023 Use bluebird during the season, have ch7, dakine, whatever i can find for storing season.

Triple8Sol I almost always use an all-temp, although sometimes a cold wax during the heart of the season. Lately I've been sticking to fluoro waxes like OBJ Viper and Dakine Indy. Have also had great luck with hydrocarbons like OBJ 4x4, Dakine Nitrous. I also have some cheap Demon hydrocarbon that I've been using for off-season storage and hot scrapes.

Slush Puppie So far I've tried Bluebird all temp and Burton Flouro all temp. I like the Bluebird but the Flouro definitely feels faster and the board feels very slippery on the snow with it. But once that's used up I doubt I'll buy more.

2 questions:

Anyone tried Data wax? Seems very cheap and comes with flouro

Graphite or Flouro for slush?

Anyone have any opinions of OBJ 4WD Warm vs. Black Magic Slush for 26 degree+ days? First time use for both for me. The latter has graphite so I'm tempted to use that.
OBJ Bio-Green sucks. I had to wax before everytime I went out.

Summer Slush would be good in warm and cool conditions. I liked it. On very cold snow it might not work so well. You need to reduce the amount of fluoro in the wax for that.

Liv4Sno OBJ F1 wax here.

I recently used their Summer Slush and that worked good too. It was flouro with graphite in it.
