To start off, without wax , your board is very vulnerable to limbs, rocks, and roots. Without wax you are still in danger of those kinds of obstacles, but with wax, you will at least have some sort of protection. The big idea of waxing your board is that it will improve your riding. With out wax you won’t be able to do what others are doing. The wax will increase your speed greatly, and it will also help with your park performance if you’re into that kind of riding. You don’t want your board to hold you back from being great do you? That should be enough to convince you that you need to wax your board. Now I will show you how.
