Not really.

Though hot wax will last longer. I generally hot wax every fourth time I use my snowboard.

Rub on wax only lasts a run or two.

If you try the search function you'll find tons and tons and tons of threads on this.

Unless you are on the harshest of crap snow a decent hot wax will last at least 2 days.

Ha! Not really abuse, just if you are concerned about glide it's nice to keep it waxed on a regular basis. I've definitely gone seasons in the past where I've only waxed 2-3 times for the year. To each his/her own...
