|super-rad||Just comparing the two boards I am currently riding, my Burton Process FV is faster than my Bataleon Jam.|

There are some long term members of this forum that NEVER wax their boards.
Number one factor in how fast a board will go? Rider.
Number two factor might be base structure before wax.
Number three factor would likely be clothing (aerodynamic or not) for a top speed test, or wax for a cat track test.
All in theory of course.

yes, the new wax definitely helped, but I also think getting more used to my board helped as well.
I imagine all the man made stuff stripped off the wax pretty well.
Heading out to SLC to hit some Utah snow now.

LOL...Wow, did not expect all this when I asked the original question. Mainly what I was looking for was a board with faster material type base. I was told that different companies has faster bases than other, so I posted here to get your opinions. Got them I did! LOL
Anyway, what was happening to me was, I was cruzin down the hill then hit a flat spot, I would have to un strap and push myself. I would try the run again and get as fast as I could to see if I could gain enough speed to make it through the flat patch and I wasn't able.
Or on the beginning of the runs where its a little flat, I would have to hop until the slope got steeper. I would see other boarders able to strap in and start to go down just fine.
I wasn't looking for high tech arguments, just wanted to get insight on boards that had a little faster base to help guide my next purchase.
I just got my Hot Knife back with a sweet wax job on it. I think the issue I had was my wax was gone from riding on pure man made snow. But I will see if this theory is right next time I go up.
Don't get wrong, I learned some good stuff from this thread. Plus it was fun see the rivalry going on
