When you wax your board with a hot wax then shave the extra off, could you keep the shaved of wax or is it not good anymore?

Shave wax is not good because it could be contaminated with dirt and what not so leave it alone and use new wax.

Yes you NEED to wax your board. Take it into a shop often to get it hot waxed if you don't want to learn how to wax it yourself. Your boards base is like your skin, it will damage it if it's dry.

every 6-8 days probably should wax your board to protect it, and keep the base nice and happy

google why to wax your board if you have more questions

I like One Ball Jay all-temp wax. Tried Bluebird wax, but if you don't get it scraped off quick it turns really hard and is a bear to scrape off.

For any beginner/intermediate, I would say just normal All-Temp wax is fine... Personally, I bought several huge blocks of Toko all-temp wax in bulk from tognar and was able to resell a couple blocks to pay off the cost of the 2 blocks I kept.


edit: whoops, didn't notice this thread was a little old... nonetheless, still important info for others to see :)

I really want to get a cheap iron to start actually waxing my board, I've only used rub and cork on wax yet, and that helped a lot, but real waxing would be much better. Wouldn't it?
I realize this was asked months ago, but it is a great iron. My buddy's has one along w/ a Burton iron (I think), and they've been going strong for years up at his place an hr fr: the mtn. It glides much smoother than mine. Plus, it doesn't have steam holes like mine.Tongue I'll be picking up the DaKine or similar set-up in March/April when next season's stuff is marked down. My WalMart iron has seen better days & will likely need to retire.

Although any iron will do the wax specific irons are safer to use as they should have a more accurate thermostat inside in to better maintain the correct temperature.

I use a Vitora brand wax iron which is made in japan and it does the job well.

I have the Iron Pro model which is the original and best selling model.
