Hi all,

I am new to snowboard and I am waxing my board by myself. However, when I wax my board this time, there are unusual stains coming out. I think they are fading off from the color patterns. I am not sure whether it is my fault though. Before waxing this time, I have removed the remaining wax using wax remover spray. Does it cause color fading more easily? Or did I overheat my board? And did I break my board?
If the board is fine, is there any way to remove the stains? What kind of service can I ask for in the store? Thanks!

Here are some photos.

The board is fine, try using a green brillow pad to take the stain out, also use it after scraping to get aaalllll the wax off
Thanks. I will try this. Should I use the green brillo pad every time when I get the wax off?

I also wonder why it happens. Is this common? How can I avoid it?
Maybe it is because I didn't clean the base well enough before applying new wax. Has anyone ever got the same problem?

Those marks seem too insignificant to worry about!

Don't overthink it, you don't really need to clean the board before applying wax more than a quick wipe with a cloth to remove grit. Bases are pretty durable, I've never damaged a base using an iron or heat gun. Just don't keep it heating the same spot for too long.

I'm doing a great deal of board tunes/waxes/repairs at present and find when I'm running the iron over LT boards the base graphics do bleed through a clear sintered base and into the wax. I never have this issue with base graphics from Burton, Bataleon, Nitro, DC or any extruded bases.

Thanks! That's a relief!

This is a Rossignol Jibfluence board. supposedly a higher-end junior board... :rolleyes:
My bad, I was replying to @Craig64 about Lib Tech bases but applies to your case, too. With manufacturers shifting to sustainable materials and processes lately, some durability may have been compromised.

That said, yours is a very minor case and obviously does not affect the usability so I wouldn't worry.
