Based in Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales, With over 17 years experience, We service Ski’s and Snowboard’s by hand. Not machine wax used.
So what exactly does waxing do for your Snowboard or Ski’s? First the wax increases the glide over the snow, meaning your Snowboard/Skis will run faster and smoother on the snow (especially on warm, mushy Spring days) Also, the build-up of wax acts as protection against rocks and rails, absorbing the small cuts, gouges and anything else that might otherwise damage the base material during the course of the day. Long term damage will cause scaring of the base and graphics. This will affect the base performance. Finally the use of wax prolongs the durability of the Snowboard/Skis meaning a longer-lasting investment for you!
When some people will wax their snowboards/skis each time they hit the hill, the general consensus seems to be that waxing once every two or three times you ride is enough to reap the benefits. Additionally some riders apply a coat of wax (but don’t scrape it) before storing the Snowboard/Ski for the Summer to keep them from oxidising.
Ski skins lost their stick? We can even reglue! Don’t forget, those skins will need a service too!! Look after your equipment and it will look after you!
