Default Scared to wax with bindings on...

Scared to wax with bindings on... I always take them off, wax the board and re-do my set up. Am I crazy?

I should say I learned from an old school dude, and this is what was told to me so I just follow it. I hear there horror stories of dimples showing up in the base.

What are you scared of? You may be the first person I have heard of that waxes the top of their board.

It means grow a pair.

Fuck the old school. Leave the binders on. So, you get some wax left in the dimples after you scrape? Who cares, go ride the fucking thing

If you're really that concerned unscrew the binding about a turn or 2 and that should relieve the pressure enought to avoid dimples

No you are not crazy. the heat of the iron will create a suction and leave bumps were the screw holes are. you dont have to take them off completely but it is safer to.

BA thinks youre a wacko for using wax on your board at all, the only time he uses wax is on his legs before he dresses up like a woman, tapes his balls to his ass cheeks and goes to work.
