What can I use to scrape wax off my snowboard?

Clean the base
This can either be done by using a base cleaner and cloth, or by the hot scrape method. A hot scrape involves using an iron to apply a thin layer of hot wax and then immediately scraping it off while the wax is still warm in order to get rid of any grime from the pores.

Beside this, can you scrape too much wax off a snowboard?

The idea of scraping is to remove all the excess wax left on the base of the snowboard. You might think leaving some wax on the base of the snowboard is going to make you go a bit faster on the hill but no, you're WRONG! Leaving excess wax on the base is actually going to dry the base out quicker.

can you over scrape a snowboard? With a plastic scraper, it is impossible to over-scrape (usually you give up before you are even "done").

People also ask, why do you scrape the wax off skis?

The whole point of waxing is to refresh the base of the ski. Melting the wax into the pores of the base is only the first part. Scraping and brushing the wax off and out ensures that just the right amount of wax stays in the pores and structure of the ski, making them fast, and preventing base burn.

How long should I leave wax on my snowboard?

After the wax is applied, take a break and let the wax cool thoroughly. It's best to leave your skis or snowboard at room temperature until the bases feel completely cool to the touch, usually about 30 minutes. If in doubt, wait a little longer; don't rush the cooling process by taking the skis or board outside.
