Does your friend have an extruded base? Those don't really need waxing. It doesn't hold wax well either way. An unwaxed extruded base will be faster than an unwaxed sintered base.

What I can't stand is a sintered base with no wax. It is frustratingly slow.
he doesnt cork it. and yeah its extruded, but the edges are already dried out.

Buds...
well I'm doing that and hiding from my wife in my garage too. Besides the first time of the season you wax once to clean..twice to slide..treece to glide and even four times because why not another beer? with 20 min breaks in the middle to let the wax cool...2 hours add up quickly.

then there is brillo-padding, brushing (Bud break) and corking depending on conditions. then you have to clean up, have dinner, watch "Deeper" one more time, and crash in bed at 10...tomorrow early alarm for the powder day...
What? Say that again? 6 January and just man made snow?

Damn...

I do wax after each trip, since I do mostly powder riding its a huge difference, my buddy who has been riding for 10 years plus and taught me almost never waxes

I say let them be, I'd be awfully busy if I start worrying about what other people do with their shit.

its not even the fact that he doesnt do it that bothered me, it was more-so the fact that he tried to make it seem like i was stupid for waxing my board. idk, it was just a rant.

well you certainly came to the right place to feel right about that opinion. nobody here is going to say waxing isn't necessary.

Nothings worse then when you are legitimately trying to help someone and the make you feel like an idiot. No dont try to convince him let him suffer.

I know a kid who is argued with me for a half hour that snowboards are made 100% plexi-glass. He claims to be a snowboarder too.

This reminds me of skateboarding. Getting pissed as I see someone stomp a perfectly good board because they couldn't land something and refused to accept that maybe its them.
This relates to the topic as its very annoying to watch someone ruin perfectly good equipment.
