How often does a snowboard need to be waxed?

We suggest waxing your snowboard every three or four times that you go riding, and even more often if you are doing it yourself. There are a few ways to check your snowboard’s base in order to tell if you need a hot wax. A dry base will start on the edges of the bottom of your snowboard.

How long does it take to wax a snowboard?

Should beginners wax their snowboards?

If your first outing with your new toy is going to be a brief one – like 1 or 2 days on the mountain then your need for a wax before you get started isn’t as crucial. However, if you are going for a week-long trip or longer then it may pay to go for that hot wax.

It’s important to wax your snowboard at room temperature for maximum wax absorption. Also, you should loosen or remove your bindings prior to waxing. This is vital because your binding screws create tension on your base when they’re mounted.

Do you wax a brand new snowboard?

A common question that new riders often ask is: Do you need to wax a new snowboard? And in general, the answer is “no.” The tune that a snowboard receives at the end of the manufacturing process (often called the “factory tune”) is good enough for most riders.

Do you wax the top of a snowboard?

You should wax the tip and tail, but only with a little bit of wax. This is because the tip and tail is hard to scrape, your tips don’t not get as much wear on the snow as the middle and you’ll get a build of gunk and wax. When you get a build up of wax on your tips it will make the board look super dirty.
