How often should I wax my snowboard?

Wax When?

Snowboard waxing should be done regularly to maximize glide and make it easier to turn and control your board.

  • Wax when snow conditions change – when the temperature drops or increases drastically.
  • Wax anytime your base looks dry, evidenced by faint white lines or patches especially near the edges.
  • Don't wax your board if it has been sitting outside or in the freezing cold all night.
  • Bring your board indoors for at least an hour before waxing to prevent damage to the base and allow for the best wax absorption.
