-eREKTion-The bases might be extruded, I don't really know much about Surface's construction. If that's the case, they're never really going to accept and hold wax. My park skis, Line Honey Badgers, have an extruded base so I have to change the way that I wax them. I don't scrape the wax off the base but instead brush the thick layer of wax 45 degrees both ways and then from tip to tail. It doesn't work great but it's the best you can do with an extruded base and it helps on warm slushy spring days. You will have to reapply often, though.
supersquidCant see all their 2020 skis yet but the older ones had sintered bases
SofaKingSicknot all of them. i don't know a ton about surface but i definitely was half considering a pair from them in the past few years and saw that some had extruded bases (which is bush league shit)
supersquidMy mistake, looked at the odysseys on the house.com and they had sintered bases. Didnt search through all models because their website was down awaiting 2020 skis. Either way its wack, such fun, wacky, interesting skis and they choose to skimp out on the little things... ya hate to see it
supersquidThat final spread you do with the iron
Dunderflipdo you iron again after scraping? never heard of that before but if it works it works I guess
