Need a quick insight
 
I need a brush(s) to wax my board, and an iron, but I don't want to spend a bunch of money. what type of brushes will be a good replacement? will any nylon brush work that is stiff? Do I need a soft brush too or does it not make a big difference? and also does the iron need to have adjusted temps? if you can answer any of these itd be a big help.

You don’t have to use a brush

Just use a scotch brite pad after scraping. If you really want a brush, I use a hard nylon. Scrape, brush then buff. If your iron doesn't have temp adjustments it will most likely burn your wax. A cheap clothing iron with temps will work fine.

Alright ill use the pads that's a great idea, does buffing make a big difference, if so, any other household products I can use. this is the iron I am looking at it has some temp change. let me know what you think

Man you can wide up with a lot of headaches and wasted money when not using the right equipment at least get a real waxing iron. It's the same price as taking your girl to a fancy dinner. And which one do you love more??

alright. im just trying to get everything. I ordered a board and am hitting the slopes in about a week. the board comes prewaxed, do I even need to do it right away? because im trying to cut corners because of the timing.

LOL! Yes you will need to get it waxed. The pre-wax it ships with wont do shit. You could get it waxed at a shop or resort. But you are better off just learning how to do it yourself if you think you will ride a lot.

There are a couple here:

alright I think ima get it waxed at a store, when I decide to do it myself will I need to brush and buff? last question, this is my first board if you cant tell.

You do this:
1.) Buy the yellow wax for normal winter temps. The wax tells you what temperature to set the iron at.

2.) You buy the iron as its heating up to 115 degrees you start to drip your wax evenly around the board.

3.) Once the iron is at full temp you melt it evenly everywhere in broad strokes.

4.) Then you slowly iron strips tip to tail not letting the iron sit still in one place.

5.) Let the board sit overnight.

6.) Buy a scraper and scrape all that wax off with the scraper.

7.) Take a nylon bristle brush and brush out the fine hard to see wax. Use a rag to wipe messy scrapings and brushings as you go .

8.) Shred for 3-6 days and do it all over again
