    Posted: Jun/21/2010 at 12:17am
Hey guys im new to snowboarding and this site (which rocks btw) and this may be a stupid question but i was wondering if you need to re-wax a new snowboard when you buy it?

I am buying either the 156 sierra crew or 155 reverse crew in this coming week and i heard that if a board has been sitting around a while it may need to be waxed again? Sorry if this is a really poop question but i wont have long between recieving this board in australia and heading to the slopes and would like to get it waxed locally rather than up in the snow :)

p.s- i was looking at getting some flow 5's or flow m9's with one of the boards above and was wondering which would be better for all-mountain and to be able to attempt a few tricks around the park?

Any help would be awesome

Cheers,
Iggy

welcome to our community!

i recommend waxing these boards before riding. I sure way to test to see if your base needs waxing is to look at it. If you see white colored splinters or texture on the base, it is saying "wax me". Once you wax the board, the white texture looks smooth, shinny and waxed!

The 5s and m9s are too similar to compare against. Both will work for the riding you described. I would pick the ones that match the board the best.

Thanks

thanks mike i will be sure to check out the board when i get it and if it needs a was im going to give it a go myself. seems like an easy enough process :)

i think my problem of making the choice between the 5s and 9s is exactly what you said...they are very similar. Might be a flip of a coin in the end but i think im going with the 9s.

Thanks for your help mate, very much appreciated! keep up the awesome work at sierra!!!
