really, yes.
Buy some floro powder and make your own world cup shit. just don't burn it (the floro stuff) or you and your family will have gnarly cancers in a few years, really.

That's alright for now though, I'm new so I don't need to be going too fast yet. I'll probably do that though later.

Ski/board wax is 80-95% paraffin...canning wax...hydrocarbon made from petroleum...$4 for a 1 pound brick at the grocery store. The other 20-5% is unicorn horn, pixy dust mixed goat turds picked by vestal virgins. Just diy in an old crock pot...melt/not smoke (no open flames...its petroleum...you frickin idiots), a brick of wax with a bar of goat turd. Then pour in to a mold...yogurt container, ice cube tray or etc. It does fine for waxing the family's 11 boards and 3 sets of skis plus all the other kids that stop by to wax and repair.

back to the hertel wax. How often do I need to wax on with riding Michigan snow? Also is it necessary to apply the rub on wax between wax jobs?

I've been trying to spread the word of Choad Cheese Snowboard Wax. Unlike many other wax manufacturers, Choad Cheese is a locally sourced, handcrafted wax that's made in the USA. They do not use harmful ingredients such as fluorocarbons or teflon, and that's because it's unnecessary unless your trying to shave milliseconds of your race time. It's not formulated for the spider suit type.

Support local whatever the brand may be.

Choad Cheese Wax is the best snowboard wax and ski wax available on earth.

I was a long time fan of one ball jay. But a few seasons back I bought my first Hertel super hot sauce wax and haven't looked back.

Going to start waxing my boards again. I looked up the cork thing as I had never heard of it before. Can you elaborate just a little more on the 3 techniques and what the "brush" is. Is this the horsehair brush? Thanks in advance.
