Easily Wax a Snowboard
Make your snowboard ready for a run down the slopes by applying a fresh layer of wax. Use a HT400 to quickly heat the wax and get on the snow faster!
Overview on Waxing a Snowboard
Snowboards need care to last a long time and to give you that quick ride down the slopes. Thankfully it's easy to wax your own snowboard and I am sharing all the details on how to do this yourself at home. Waxing your snowboard after every few days on the slopes will help to keep the bottom of your board in good condition and can also improve your ride down the mountain.
With the right tools and a little bit of knowledge, this task is fairly easy too. If you want to find out more about the different methods for waxing a snowboard (the hot wax method vs the crayon method), you should read my post on different waxing methods.
Giving your board an occasional wax with the hot wax method is a good idea. But in between that, giving your board a quick wax with the crayon method is a great way to quickly and easily keep your board in tip top shape. Today I am going to share how I waxed our snowboards using the crayon and a Wagner heater gun.
Note that I always recommend following all manufacturer instructions so ensure that you read all pamphlets and information about both the heat gun and the wax you use prior to using them.
Gather wax, scraper and heat gun to prepare for the project.
Remove leftover wax
Use a scraper tool to remove leftover wax from your board going with the grain of the board.
Rub wax on board
Rub the wax all over the board with the grain so that there is a film of wax all over the board.
Use heat gun to melt the wax
Use your Heat Gun to carefully melt the wax on the board. (Be sure to read HERE before doing this step because it is important to do it correctly or else you can ruin your board.)
Work wax into the board
Use paper towels to rub the wax on the board while it is still warm.
Allow to cool and remove excess wax
Allow the wax to cool completely and then use the scraper again to remove any excess wax from your board.
