Sorry for the second question but do you strip the wax at the beginning of the season and put a fresh wax job on or can you just scrape the summer wax and ride?

i usually get my board hot waxed before every season. After 3 or 4 trips i usually just use rub on wax and let it sit on there for a little bit before scraping it off. Im not sure if rub on wax is just as good as hot waxing but my board has been fine every season

For the most part.  If it has a steam setting make sure its off and empty.

It really depends on the beveled edge you really want. Having a base bevel of 2+ degrees (all the way to 3) is really great for freestyle riders who don't want to catch their edge on jibs and rails. Vice versa, riders who want to be able to hold a tight edge while carving generally have a lower beveled edge. To answer your question about not knowing the bevel degree you have, I would search around by googling your board specs. If nothing comes up, it won't hurt your board by deciding the new bevel degree you want for yourself.

Here's a pretty legit site on finding the beveled edge degree that fits your style of riding- Edge Angles

Ive been waxing my board for a few weeks now, and usually re apply wax before all of the previos wax is off. I do have base cleaner but my board doesnt get very dirty and I have been told it really dries out the base. Ive heard a lot about a hot scrape? Can anyone tell me what exactly to do and does it work?

Awesome thread...and the site search tool actually worked!

So I'm going to remove my bindings and put them and my boots back in their boxes for the summer. I also still have the plastic sleave for my board, so I can put that in there as well.

My question is, how to actually position my board so it doesn't loose camber or anything like that. I have room in my garage, but it get's over 110degrees in the summer here in Vegas, so I'd rather keep it in my bedroom closet. If I do that, I will most likely have it propped up on it's tail or nose against the wall. Is that going to cause it to loose it's camber? Should I store it on it's toe or heel edge instead?

I sharpen the edges and hot wax my own boards after every few days used.  It's no pro job, but it's been working for 3 seasons on the same boards.

Yeah its those green kitchen pads they just take off some more of the wax from the base basically buffs it. Make sure you use it in nose to tail motions not circular or edge to edge.

As far as the hot wax scrape its just a normal wax then scrape off the excess.

To those of you that use rub on wax that is NOT a replacement for hot waxing at all. It does not go into the pores of the base nearly as much, does not last as long, does not clean the base like a good hot wax does( hot waxing pulls up stuff from the base another reason why you scrape), and will not be thick enough to protect your base from drying over the summer.

I just hope TruSnow stocks up on some wax irons asap season is approaching.
