Waxing in sauna

I didn't feel like putting in the time to give my board a hot wax. To save a little I put Mr. Zogs rub on wax and put by snowboard in the sauna, I am unsure of the temperature if I had to guess maybe 130 degrees. Went to check on my snowboard and the base of the board was almost perfect. I rubbed more wax on the board and ended up putting to much on so now I have to do some scraping.
When I took the snowboard out it was very warm almost to hot to hold but not quite at that point yet.

Do you guys thing this is an effective method for a easy hot wax? Any reason why the sauna will negatively effect my board? Does it matter I used a heating method with rub on wax?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.

This has GOT to be a troll post!?! Methinks JetFalcon started a new name!

You should NOT be waxing your board in the sauna, for many reasons...

What if it's girl in the nude doing the waxing? Think of the possibilities.

Haha... oh man haha.

First of all the sauna is no where near the kind of heat an iron creates...

Second, I'm sure your board does look great after a rub on wax sauna or no sauna... but it will be gone after one run becuase thats all rub on wax is good for.

Third... um...

haha!

I didn't even know Mr. Zogs made snowboard wax (they do).

Anyway, I'm hoping, for your sake, the board you did this to is an old beater...because you probably just effed it up

Actually if it was 130 degrees F(most mild saunas are around 140 or so) that would only be 55 degrees Celsius. Can't remember which thread I was reading, but it mentioned needing 60 degrees to start softening the resin if you were planning to "de-camber" an old board.

Chances are he didn't hurt much, just didn't accomplish much either. Best bet would be to scrape that crap off, use some base cleaner, then give it a proper hot wax with an iron. Or maybe leave it to the professionals!!!

My biggest complaint is that a sauna is for bathing. The only things that should be brought in are shampoos and soaps, and maybe a little eucalyptus oil or birch saplings! I would air that sauna out real well before using it again.
