So do I lose some street cred if I admit that I just take my board (and my husbands) to the shop at the ski resort and let them do it? lol

I just waxed one of my boards for the very first time the other day! (...only reason I tried was now that I got two decks, I can't afford $15-$20 bucks a pop for ea.!!! (gotta admit,.. even tho I thought I did a crappy job. Board really flew last night!!)

Waxing a board is like cleaning a gun. Sure someone else can do it but I trust myself way more. Oh and I use a dollar store iron.

Never taking my board to be waxed at the resort again! So mad. If I mess up my board I take responsibility for it. I dont expect it to be pretty forever. But when someone else does it.....grrrrrr!

Husband took it in to be waxed while I was helping my daughter get her ski boots on. When he brings it back there are scratches all over the top of it and one of my union bindings has a big ass dent in the heel cup. How hard to you have to hit one of those heel cups to dent it? So mad.

So, I am buying an iron this week and will be doing it myself from now on.

really waxing and scrapping takes 5-10 min max, at $4 a pound for canning wax and a $2 travel iron from the thrift store....= more lap dances and beer money. At my age, going 40-50 mph blasting groomers, I do not need to waste my time to get a shop wax to go faster.

It sucks to learn valuable lessons the hard way. Lol! As for how hard it is to dent a heel cup, I'd say they slammed it pretty good. I know I'm not nice on my equipment, but I've never dented the heel cup on my union Flites, and believe me, there are time where I thought for sure I should have. Also, my waxing iron came from Goodwill. I think I paid a dollar for it. Don't overthink it, it's just wax.
