dont get anything from 'demon' when i hot waxed my board i noticed that 1 of the studs wasnt where i placed it... i tried to move it and it pretty much slid on my board. the heat from the iron heated up the adhesive and made it loose.. i ended up pulling it off..
Hey bro, just a heads up here.. If you can feel heat from the Iron on the topsheet and it caused one of the studs to fall off, you are using WAY TO MUCH HEAT ON YOUR BASE FROM THE IRON!!
This could damage your boards base and or cause delamination.
Keep the Iron moving at a pace that melts the wax as you move it , but it sounds like you are using too much heat and or leting the iron stay in one place to long
If you can feel heat from the iron on the topsheet?? danger Will Robinson..!! no good
I got a new board this season and was contemplating putting one on but I loved the way it looked so much I tried going my first day without it. By just pushing my foot up against my binding I was totally fine, I definitely wont be putting a pad on this board.
i bought the ones one the left and spent about ten bucks i think. and i went boarding the next day and they all felt off and i lost them. i followed the instructions and even cleaned the area with alcohol swabs
Dont use one. It's so easy to ride on your board without one. You'll get used to it real quick and you wont notice a difference at all.
I have to disagree. Snow sticking during certain conditions to the board on the top and trying to clean it all off, even if done foot still slips on the top of the board. Pushing it against the binding might be adequate at best getting off the lift but turning to go a ways on a flat start to the beginning of the slope I prefer a stomp pad for traction to control the board a little more.
I don't do much maneuvering outside of my binding. I usually get off the lift, bend over and strap my boot in and take off down the hill. I don't stop or turn unless someone falls in front of me. I don't know what the lift exits will be like out here in Oregon, but I hope the hill isn't too far from the exit.
