Hate that wax. Bluebird for me now. I will try Hertel Hotsauce next.

I'm thoroughly pleased with Bluebird though.

So sorry to beat this point into the ground, but I just started riding regularly (3rd season). Is it very obvious when you need to wax? Being from the east I'm aware I ride mostly sh!t so I want to make sure I stay up on my maint. Would waxing every 4-5 trips be enough? I ride a Rossignol One with a Sintered base

I wax when my black sintered base shows some whiteness. This can happen after one day or three, it depends on snow conditions.

Kinda like when you can tell your skin looks ashy you put lotion on.

I wax generally just a few times a year. I haven't waxed my board since early November. I know my resort so I just go fast in the flats. It isn't a big deal imo. I can tell a difference but I would rather spend the time that is takes to wax to just run 20 minutes up the mountain and ride than wax.

thanks for the advice. My Rossi has a black base which makes it easy. Its only showing a little white at the edges under the bindings, but I'd rather be sure I'm prepared than get out there and realize I should have waxed.

Yep, that's where it shows up first.

Yea, the green one. I guess Brillos are the more abrasive kind? I will nylon brush lightly too.
