I think spring corn is actually second to powder ... Chair 9 at mammoth last week was slushy. Kind of fun.

Definitely noticed the wax. Put an all temp wax the first night and was pretty fast. Lazy to reapply the second day and definitely noticed how much slower I was.

I love slush. I've had some of my funnest sessions on slushy spring and summer days.

Structure will improve your board's performance a lot during the springtime. I'm using warm wax already in mammoth and the slush is getting fun. I didn't get as much powder this season as I'd hoped for so I'm taking advantage of all the slush I can slash.

used a red wax today and i was flying...tried all-temp the other day and it sucked! nothing worse than getting up there and finding you are sticking, fuuuuuk!

the slush/corn is def more abrasive, waz never seems to last the full day, i put it on thick and smooth, then barely scrape at all...i usually go noon to 4 on spring days too, skip the morning ice and crust, meh

one week left here, its just as well, all of a sudden theres dirt and shyte showing all over the place....cheers all, enjoy it while you can!

Went out there today to get me some of that spring slush and going back tomorrow to get some more. Almost 40 degrees in the parking lot in the morning. Could've been sunnier tho.

I didn't break out the red wax today. It's been about 10 days riding since my last wax and i still had no problem cruising past everyone, even on the flat sections.

I love spring slush surfing but we got powder! Yesterday 20 cm fresh, this night 11cm, and it's still snowing. Best season ever

Haha... wrong wax can be a pain. Straight line -> wattery patch -> full stop. Def. the season to be not too relaxed in the front seat or you might kiss a tip.

Spring slush is always a fun time. Makes the park a lot more forgiving too. I like to get up there in the morning though when the corduroy is still fresh and hard. Best time ever to go for those top speeds.
