Snowboards need care to last a long time and to give you that quick ride down the slopes. Thankfully it is 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.
Waxing your snowboard can be done quickly with the right tools and a little bit of knowledge. 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 HERE.
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 method with you.
Here are the tools I used to wax our snowboards:
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.
Use a scraper tool to remove leftover wax from your board going with the grain of the board.
Rub the wax all over the board with the grain so that there is a film of wax all over the board.
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.)
Use paper towels to rub the wax on the board while it is still warm.
Allow the wax to cool completely and then use the scraper again to remove any excess wax from your board.
