Waxing 101 - How To Wax Your Snowboard at Home (with Temple Cummins)

Posted on

Why do you want to wax your snowboard? It seems pretty slick already but the bottom of your board is made of a material called Ptex. If you were to look at it under a microscope it would look like Swiss Cheese and when you heat up that ptex all those little swiss cheese holes get filled up with wax and fill the ptex and help prevent it from drying out.

Each time you heat up the base you open up those pores and allow the wax to fill deeper into the base material. This ensures your base will last many seasons.

This video goes through the step-by-step process how to wax your snowboard at home. You can get much more technical with snowboard waxing when prepping for races but this basic snowboard waxing process is essential to maintaining your snowboard or skis.

Has your snowboard been sitting in the garage getting rusty and the base all dried out? Follow along with GNU's pro rider, Temple Cummins, on how to get your snowboard ready for the season.

He walks you through firing up your snowboard waxing iron, cleaning your base with our bio-degradeable snowboard base cleaner, freshening up those rusty snowboard edges with a gummy stone and applying your preferred snowboard & ski wax. Finally scraping off that snowboard wax with one of our wax scrapers and using a waxing brush to finish it off.
