i know why you have 9 karma, because you are a fucking retard.
buy a ski iron, mine cost be 35 bucks, how cheap could you be? you just spent hundreds of dollars on new skis and you are going to risk burning the bases with a shitty home iron?
waxing can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be, if you are a park rat like the majority of this site then i wouldnt worry about the complexity of hot waxing, just keep it simple
1. melt it on with your iron set at the corect them for the wax
2. let it cool for about an hour
4. buff, this isnt needed but i will list it any way, use a brass brush to start, then a nylon, then some people use a coarse boar hair, and then re do the nylon and then finish with a horse hair. again this is probably way overkill for 90% of this site.
5. fibertex pad, i am going to say this is something you will want, this is one of the final stages of buffing the base, it will give your ski that new look. sometimes followed by a polishing clothe.
those are the basics, there is a thread in gear talk that goes pretty in depth if you want to know more.
