Show your board some love

After putting all of your money towards a new snowboard, the least you can do is show it a little respect. It's bound to get thrashed, but it still needs some love. A bunch of companies make this easier than ever.

Get the excess wax off the board.

 

One Ball Jay Wax Brushes ($16 / each)

A brass brush takes old wax off the base and provides a good bonding surface for the new stuff. A nylon brush buffs and removes excess wax from base after you scrape.
