Too early to wax ?
 
Just got a new snowboard.... is it too early to wax it ? since its prolly another 2 months before snow starts to fall... or should i wax it now to protect the base and wax it again when the snow starts to fall ?

How often do you guys wax your boards ?

is it brand new? if so I wouldn't bother since you still have that fresh factory coat on.

but It's funny you asked, because I just waxed mine this morning because I was bored out of my mind. :cool:

Do you know how to wax your board?

I mean I don't see why you would need to wax it just to protect it, when it's just going to be sitting in your closet.

Some people wax every other day, some every week, some once a month, some never do...

If you're riding every day/every other day I think you would be fine waxing it once a week. It's just a fun ritual to do..

You will be find riding it a few times, then waxing it up.

no i dont... but i was told by the store that i should put a layer of wax on it to protect it from drying out or something ? cant really remember what he said...

i will learn how to wax myself eventually......

Use unicorn wax with goat turds that were hand picked by virgins.

and yes I would like to see your youtube of you waxing yourself...on second thought probably not

WasatchMan 10-15-2011 07:17 PM

Definitely do it yourself, after two wax jobs you will have your money back.

Heres a good video lesson by a member here.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

You can pick up all your items separate or buy a kit.

The Dakine super tune kit is pretty decent. Or you can but the deluxe kit and buy your iron separate.

The factory wax job is piss poor at best. ALWAYS wax a new board before you use it. If you want to toss on a thick coat to protect it there is no harm in that. Most people toss a thick layer on after the season is over for storage.
