Default Best Snowboard Waxing Kit

I just recently bought a new snowboard and I've decided to go ahead and start waxing myself. I was wondering if i could get some advice on what kit would be best to start with. I've been looking at this one on Amazon but am open to other suggestions.Thanks for the help.

Default Good buy!

The Dakine Super Tune kit works great for me! It even has extra space to add tools. So far i've only had to add an exacto knife and a nylon brush.

So is the nylon brush the only brush that would be needed for waxing since the kit already comes with the scrubbing pad? Or should I get a horse hair brush also?

I never bought a kit. I bought the cheapest clothes iron at Wal-Mart for about $7. I got a scrap strip of plexiglass for free from Home Depot for a scraper. I buy bulk one pound blocks of Purl Racing wax for cost ($20) from a local shop. I use a kitchen brillo pad for the final scrubbing.

Also do you think a base cleaner is necessary or is justing using the brass brush at the beginning enough to get the board clean?

Just grab some citrus based cleaner to use as base cleaner. It's essentially the same stuff at 1/10th of the price.

I was looking at the Dakine super kit as well and am still undecided if I should just piece together a kit or buy a kit, kinda unsure what I really need and dont or wont use?

Anyways heres another kit that maybe a good choice: OneBallJay Hot Wax Tuning Kit from Dogfunk.com

I recently waxed my board with Dakine wax, wore off in one day of riding on my Lib.

I've heard you can buy seperate waxing materials at Walmart for a helluva lot cheaper then buying a Dakine kit. They've got irons for like $7.

other than the wax, I hear you can find what you need for a good wax/tune job already at your home you probably just dont realize it yet...

clothes iron - check
metal ruler/ excess plexiglass/ something fairly stiff flat and hard enough to scrape excess wax - check
scotch brite - check


If not, buy them separate and it will be a heckuva lot cheaper than a kit.
