Swix Base Prep wax or some other company's base prep waxI’m new to giving maintenance to my own board. I was wondering if people put on a new coat of wax to protect the base whenever their board doesn’t get used for awhile? Is that even a thing?
Nailed it.Honestly, I almost always wax the same wether for the next day, a week or the summer, so that it's always ready to ride. Clean your base and do those long pass to get the wax deep into the base. Just cover the edges (which I always do). You don't need that much more wax for the summer. I know some people just want a protective coat in the summer and then unwax/rewax at the begining of season and some will tell you that 6 month old wax isn't good. Just scrap it and ride, you probably won't notice the difference.
