Why is it important to get my equipment tuned?
A flat base is vital to get the best performance from your skis or board. The pattern on the base is called the ‘structure‘ this can be varied to suit the snow conditions and provide better glide.
Edges wear out with day to day use, they knock on objects and each other, also the abrasive characteristic of snow dulls the edge over time. As they become worn and blunt the edges are less effective. You’ll be amazed the difference a quality sharp and tuned edge will make to your skiing and boarding. You’ll be able to turn harder with less effort and stop easier with confidence.
How often should I wax my skis/snowboard?
Wax is the moisturiser for the base of your skis and snowboards, dry bases are rough and slow. Regular waxing will, improve glide and give you a more enjoyable experience.
Generally you should get between 4 and 7 days riding from 1 wax, depending on snow conditions.
Do I need to sharpen my edges if I ride/ski a lot of park?
Edges are there for turning and stopping, they can get in the way when it comes to boxes and rails. For an all-round usable board in park and on the slopes try the new 3 degree ‘park n ride’ edge. The edge angle is set at 3 degrees that gets it out of the way in the park but when you need it, it’s there.
