Gloppy? If you know how to wax you don't have alot of excess to start with, and you don't drip any wax on the tips. Wax ends up on the tips just from the excess that gets spread around near the ends, and I just scrape a bit past the contact points, its not like i'm deliberately coating the tips excessively

Here's your first problem you're riding a MLY.

herzogone I'm one of those who gave up waxing. I have well over 30 days since my last wax (I'm sure BA has gone much longer). I haven't really missed it other than one brief moment when I first got to the hill. It was packed powder and my board felt very sticky when skating in the lift line. Interestingly, very quickly into my first run it seemed to get faster and ceased to be sticky after that.

With regards to the OP, back when I waxed my board I would usually hit the tip and tail with a little wax, but I wouldn't work too hard at it, or scrape it too thoroughly.

john doe I wax my own boards and only wax the tip/tail once at the beginning. Even that is only to clean them.

Donutz Tips are irrelevant. I wax my own boards and I don't go right to the ends.
