my board got waxed about once a month, i went about 4 times a month or so so it worked out well. Anything negative about the electric EG1's? They're on whiskey (and will be back) and im in need of some new goggles since i got a helmet and theres a gap with the cheap oak's im using.

did you ever think about bringing your helmet into the store and seeing which goggles fit? normally you can just pick up a helmet thats made by the goggle company and they will both fit. but then again, some goggles are not made to work with a helmet. normally i just buy a few pars every other year and just pick the ones that work well.

dude, its like run the **** down. nice near the beach for like one block, but its just strip clubs and random rundown bars and creepy clubs. i might enjoy it if i didn't feel like i would get shot. we parked the car and when we got out i saw a syringe laying on the ground, right next to the strip club. this place is just dirty.

well i do ride at least once a week and yet i haven't gotten it waxed once this season haha...all i do is sesh rails and the occasional jump, so i just never see the need seeing as the board gets pretty hacked up. But thanks, i am going to give it a good waxing this weekend.

its sad that people don't understand why you wax your board. its not just making it go faster, ts protecting your base form cracking and falling apart. your base is like a layer of skin, that wax keeps in smooth and healthy. when you don't wax it, the pores in your board start to crack and so on. when you hot wax it, you open those pores up and allow the Hydrocarbon in the wax to flow into the base and protect it. its like putting armorall on leather seats.

meh, my boards don't last long enough for any of this cracking or other negative effects to really show up i guess. Maybe i'm just lucky.

I just ride, i have never taken an interest in understanding all the technical aspects of snowboard equipment (even if it is really basic to you). I was like that with paintball, i barely knew how to maintain my guns, i just played.

whatevs, now i suppose i shall try and keep up with the board waxings now that you have brought this to my attention.

Exactly. Just don't ruin your base by wax with an iron that has holes at the bottom.
