robbied Thanks Snowolf, I did watch the video and read the instructional's on that post. I waxed my friends board yesterday and my board again and I did notice the thinnest part of the board (the tail and nose) heats up more than the rest of the board.

robbied I think im okay then, the base is not visibly burnt or damaged. I thought maybe with the excess heat the boards flexibility and riding properties might be altered.

I did keep the iron moving though. On the last passes from nose to tail I went slowly to get a nice consistency and after that where the tail bend starts (where my board is thinnest) it was hot on the topsheet.

Grimdog I would say that that is too hot if you are just about to burn your fingers. I'm constantly feeling the top sheet of the board while I wax to make sure it is not getting too hot. If you have damaged it you should be able to tell by looking at it for any inconsistencies in the base where the base material may have pulled away from the core.

killclimbz Well for one. When you wax, you are to move the iron around not letting it sit on one spot. As long as you didn't bubble or burn the base of your board you're probably ok. If it delams next time you are out on the snow on that spot, you'll know why it did.

Snowboard Waxing

Hi Guys,
Nice forum you have here!

I've got a question about snowboard waxing. Just waxed my board. Towards the end the top sheet felt hot, almost to the point of burning my fingers. Have I damaged my board by overheating it? It's a new board and that was its second wax.

Thanks.
