Default Waxing Frequency question

Got back from a border cross competition where the board that was used
was run three (3) times (second place, first place, second place thank
you). It had been waxed "thin to win" using a brass brush to remove the
excess wax.

Before the next competition, should I
1) Just buff the board
2) Strip and re-wax
3) Re-wax

Thanks guys,

Chris

I wouldn't strip the wax. Maybe clean it with windex and then rewax
and brush.

Congrats! I think it partly depends upon the snow conditions
where you raced as well as how well your base typically holds
wax. If in doubt maybe hit it with a quick shot of an orange
cleaner and then a quick hot wax. Probably also want to wait
as long as possible to see what temp the snow will be for the
next race. Good luck!

Congrats!

I'g have to go along with those who say wax for the conditions that you're
most likley to encounter at your next event, waiting until the night before
when yo have a good idea what the weather will be like.

At the recent Mt Bachelor event, I saw competitors adding wax (presumably a
warmer one than they used the night bfore) night before the comp, as the
snow was rather wet.
