Default Snowboard Tune-up in Sacramento

Hi, I just moved to Sacramento and just started getting into snowboarding. I bought a used board and was told that the board needed a wax. I've been trying to find a good tune-up shop. I found REI, but they want $25 for a hot wax without a membership and Land Park Ski & Sports wanted $17. From my research, people suggest that I should only be paying $8-$10 for a hot wax.

Any suggestions?

To really save money you can go out to REI and buy a select list of things. Then type in "how to wax a snowboard "
The most usual waxing supplies are:
-iron
-wax
-citrus cleaner
-gummy stone
-some sort of buffer
-scraper
I guarantee that if you stick with snowboarding you will save a ton of money waxing boards your self.
Waxing should be done every 3 times you ride. Some people wax as often as every time they ride

I've watched the videos on how to wax. It's just that I live in a very small apartment that's mostly carpeted. Scraping the wax would cause a big mess and I don't want to deal with that right now. I'd rather have someone do it.
