bseracka DuraSurf™ has a long list of properties that make it ideal for applications in a wide range of fields. It combines the greatest impact strength of any thermoplastic, with a low coefficient of friction and tremendous abrasion resistance.

The low coefficient of friction, tremendous abrasion resistance and non-absorbing nature of DuraSurf™ UHMW makes for an outstanding running surface for snowboards and skis. It’s sublimatability and dimensional stability provide for excellent graphic presentation and die cutting. Its impact resistance and machinability allow for DuraSurf™ to be used as tip fill and sidewalls, and the bondability and light weight makes for a great topsheet. Similar requirements are creating new opportunities for DuraSurf™ in the wakeboard and kiteboard industries.

BurtonAvenger Got to love that crown plastics base. Curse of the Never Summers.

kaka Man-made snow will do that, did to mine. I may be wrong but a new board at the beginning will wear out wax fast and dry out. I wax mine every time out for the first 5-6 times out, then the board starts to hold the wax better, and this doesn't happen so much.

Also, the type of wax makes of difference I'm sure, but I don't really know enough about this to comment further.

Your edges will always take a beating and the harder wax along the edges will prolong the lifespan of your wax job. Don't worry about mixing the waxes. Many of us who wax often mix up our own "special" blends.

I tend to to do this 80% of the time when I wax as I am more often than not riding man made. Remember riding on man made is one very small step away from riding on ice.
I ride the ice coast and even with Swix Green wax (hard, cold temp) it still does the same thing. I hate scraping hard waxes so I don't find it worth it. Just get some rub on wax and apply to the edges as needed to supplement your hot waxes.

apintojr My forum scally is infamous for that. after a fresh wax and a nice day of riding my scally along the edges turns white.

Gonna try oldman tips with a harder wax for the edges.

Maybe you were really ripping up the hill. Good work.

If it was a quickie belt wax and you were riding all day particularly if on man made snow I could see this happening. Hand waxing penetrates the base better and lasts a little longer, so if it was a proper hand wax I'd be a bit surprised to have it worn off so soon.
