To be honest with you I've been on the factory wax on my new Virus for about 4 days now... It's been running fine in fact I passed a skier on the flats the other day who kept having to use her poles... I'll probably wax it again soon.
Honestly though you can fit all your waxing stuff in your board bag, iron goes in one binding (with the highback folded over it) and the scraper, wax, pads, etc can just lie flat on the board. Takes up very little room.

I have read trough a lot of threads which mentioned factory wax, and I now understand that it isn't that great. My question is: I'm going on a snowboard trip in the Alps, but before that I will ride a little bit indoor (We don't really have that much mountains in Belgium). I'm thinking about an hour or 4 indoor. Should I wax it before I leave on the trip or just leave it with the factory wax?
I can't bring wax with me on the trip because the bagage space is very very limited. I'm planning on waxing it myself if necessary (The local shops gives a demo if you ask it, so I can learn from that).
