BrandoComandoI understand waxing your skis reduces friction. If you wax, you ski fast. And if racers don't wax or if they use the wrong wax, they can burn their bases. Is there any damage risk to waxing bases only once or twice a season? I go fast but I'm not Lindsay Vonn
broken_skier0Whenever I feel like I'm not getting enough speed on jumps and usually once at the beginning and end of the season. For my next pair of skis, I'm going with Phantom.
clindblomskierThat phantom stuff smells like BS. There isn't any material that doesn't wear.
broken_skier0It's not BS. It permanently modifies your base.
clindblomskierAre you a dps employee?
eheathFor just casual skiing, I never wax my skis, but I found myself waxing my skis often in the spring/summer when I was at park shoots, wcs, summer camp etc but when the snow is cold I rarely wax.
CatdickBojanglesAlso does anyone iron the wax multiple times? I initially iron the wax on then every hour or two re iron 3 or 4 times. I’ve heard it helps and I’ve also heard it’s useless but I feel like I can tell a difference sometimes.
