How to Wax a Snowboard – Part 2 – Transcript
So we’ve given our board about a half an hour to cool down. The board’s cool to the touch. So we’re going to go ahead scrape and brush it off and finish our waxing here. Again, we’ll grab our stainless brush. You get a lot of mileage out of this little stainless steel brush. It works really well. It’s an open brush, finishing brush. Then I’ll go back over it with the horsehair and finish all that structure out. Get the wax out of that structure.
You can go over that a couple extra times but in the interest of time and the video, we’ll go right to polishing. And, what we do here is just polish it through looking for a nice shine on it and it’ll give you a real fast scrub work. One of the last things we’ll do is take our plastic scraper, go down that edge just to make sure that the edges are cleaned off from any wax there. Then we’ll brush it off one more time real quick and we’re ready to go.
Now just a quick summary of what we’ve done. We first grabbed our gummi stone, very important. First thing we did was went over and checked all of our edges, sanded off our edges; made sure that we had no big nicks sticking out that would catch our fingers or damage our waxing tools. We used our stainless steel brush to brush the snowboard off and what that did is remove a lot of the wax and the dirt out of it.
So we brushed it out instead of using a wax remover. We then did our hot scrape with it. So we melted the wax onto the snowboard, scraped it off and then we did our final waxing with our race wax that we put on, and we ironed it in. Let it set for about a half an hour to cool down and then scraped and brushed it out, and we’re ready to go. If you’re someone interested in a lot of speed, the race waxes work really nice. The formatted waxes repel the dirt there very fast.
If you’re going to work mostly in the terrain part then what you’re really after is protecting that snowboard. Then you want to use more of the universal wax on it. So with that note, grab your board and head to the slope. Have a good time and a good day!
