Waxing your board

Who here loves waxing their board? I told the sales guy at my local shop that I love waxing my board and he looked at me like I was crazy.

Waxing my board is a bonding experience. I usually light some ptex candles, throw on some Barry White and get to drippin and scrapin.

Also there is nothing like the smell of some fresh OBJ wax.

I guess I'm the only one who hates waxing my board. I do it because I do a better job than those kids at the shop.

This.

I love the smell of OBJ. And yeah, waxing is super relaxing for me. It's just rude not to warm things up with some foreplay. You can't expect your lady to give up the goods if you don't rub her right in advance.

I love it, too. The guy at the shop looked at me sideways also.

I use Dakine wax. The smell is intoxicating. Both figuratively and quite literally if you inhale too much of it.
In fact, I may go wax one of my ladies right now!!

What kind of Dakine do you use? I keep seeing it in the 2 shops I frequent. Haven't had the stones to try it yet. Do you melt or just use the rub on?
