destroy I wax my board every couple of times out. My sintered boards obvz need more wax. It makes quite a difference.

And yes, non-waxers should steer clear.

tanscrazydaisy Prior to me buying an iron, etc... yes, I never really waxed it before storage, or often during the season....

so... after every day I ride, I wax.

Just before I pack up my board for the season, I do a hot wax-scrape to get my base clean... and to use up what's left of the wax, a quicky layer of wax on the board for storage.

Not too concerned with waxing my edges.... since my board has stainless steel edges

IS3_FTW Waxing for storage never crossed my mind. Now I see why.

Agreed. I was snowboarding yesterday in wet sticky spring like snow and I haven't waxed my board since December. I had to hand wax warmer wax so I can glide pass them non wax boarders/skiers. Jimminy cricket never knocked on their brains to give them common sense

Summer: stored in a board bag under the bed, without wax.

My quote came from a time my buddy came to the range with me one day. He'd never shot a gun before, and I had a bolt action rifle with only about 250 shots though it, so the action was a little stiff. He took his first shot, tried cycling the action and it kept binding on him. I think he was trying to be careful with the gun.

So I yell "It's a gun not a barbie doll!!!" and he proceeds to reef on the bolt, load the next round, and he's good to go!



From the same token, boards are built to be harped on. We strap our 175 lb selves to these things, then go ride them over ice, rocks, stumps, etc. How the board sits in between thrashings is the least of it's concern!

hikerman This was my first year snowboarding and my board will be up on a shelf in the garage with my kids boards until waxing before next season. I can't wait.

bingo !!! not really necessary, but it takes up a fraction of the space... I live in the city ( Oslo ) and we are a family of 3 that snowboard, slalom, and langrenn (cross country) I could use all the space thats available...
