Best Waxes?

Hey everyone I searched for info on wax on the forum and it told me there were no results. I know this is not true and I am sure my question has been answered somewhere, but I could not find it. I mainly ride on groomed slopes and was wondering what would be the best wax for my board. I ride the arbor westmark and am in and out of the terrain park while I am on the mountain. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Ski Wax Snowboard Wax Tuning Tools RaceWax.com
Ski wax kits, snowboard wax kits, skiing wax, snowboarding waxes and waxing accessories : Hertelwax.com

Not sure what you mean by "best", but check out both of those sites. I don't compete and don't feel the need to spend a ton of money on wax. I just bought a big brick of the Hertel all temp wax.

Prep it differently for different conditions. Really cold and pow, high polish cork very little brush. Cold mixed snow, high polish, no brush, pow day, not too cold, cork then brush, warm, brush only. Of course this is after scraping completely.

A friend of mine told me to use gulf wax from the grocery store, haven't done it yet but that's much cheaper than snowboard brand wax I see.

it will be OK, but will not last at all. If you want to use that as a base, add some Sodium Laurel sulfate, colors, bake it and GET WICKED FAST.

really? that might be easy enough. i use lots of wax each season on all my friends boards so i might try this for their boards. (saves me buying two bricks of hot sauce each season)
