wax is critical for the 'maintaining speed' part, across flats and on the cats, that's when you really notice (the skiers receding in your rearview)

Take a shitty board (no wax needed), go down a black trail, point the board straight down without turning. Any board will go down a black trail pretty fast when pointed straight down...

The question is... Are your balls big enough to hit the absolute limit of the board on a black trail...
