The important thing is to have covered the entire effective base with wax, warmed enough for it have soaked in to the crevices. (You don't really have to worry about the tips). I'd bet there are as many different techniques as there are snowboarders, but the important thing is the result.

As long as you don't overheat and damage your base, it's really not a high-precision task.

extra0 whatever you're doing is probably fine. The sticking doesn't mean anything. Just try to get the wax spread evenly across the board.

I'm just a little more of a perfectionist and pull lines of wax from tip to tail...no biggee

Waxing question

So I am waxing my board for the first time. I think I used a good amount of wax. When I was rubbing around the iron, some spots were good and smooth to move around and some it felt like the iron was trying to stick to the board. What does it mean when it tries to stick and doesnt move as well? Thanks!
