my roommate doesnt believe in waxing.

i was waxing my board and asked my roommate if he wanted me to do his too, but hed hafto scrape it. he told me waxing was pointless, and justified it by telling me he never once waxed his old board.

but he just got a brand new deck, took it out once and that thing needs wax. \

he says he carries rub on wax in his pocket and just applies it at the top of the run, and even after i told him rub on wax does nothing still refused my offer. im not sure why this bothers me, but it does. haha.

ever encounter someone like this? should i let it go or convince him hes wrong? lol.

Go somewhere that has long and flat as fuck cat tracks and watch as dickhead has to walk out while you cut laps.

That should do it

^ That would kind of piss me off too. My resort if pretty flat so waxing keeps the lungs from hurting.

I have a friend who's been riding about 10 years. He never even heard of waxing a board before I asked if he wanted to come with me to my local shop to have a summer wax the end of last season.

And because he's ridden his board for about 10 years never having waxed it, he didn't think it was necessary (but had the summer wax done anyway).

I told him he didn't know what he was missing. His blasť attitude about it kind of bothered me, so I get what you're saying haha.

You don't HAVE to change the oil in your car either

I rarely wax anymore. Maybe for summer camp and that's it.
