    Default overwaxed boxes

    anybody else hate it when someone overwaxes the angle iron on a box? i can't fucking stand locking in a grind and it feels like i'm just rolling on the box. anybody have any good de-waxing methods?

    scrap grip, razorblade, etc. i suppose a can of deoderant and a lighter would melt it all off

    one of the local parks here under a bridge has these boxes/ramps that are concrete but feel like plastic since theyve just been waxed so much over the years and with rain barely getting there it just stays on, i mean its fun since you can lipslide the whole thing but if you want to manny on that shit you better not move your weight at all or youre slippin

    Wouldn't leaving it out in the sun work? Then when it's gooey from being left in the sun, just scrape it off.

    Sucks a lot when you are trying to grind/manny but if you've ever been to the Sioux City park something fun we like to do is just wax the everliving shit out of the top of the box and ollie>powerslide the whole thing. It's so fucking fun.

    Fuck wax in general unless you're street skating. It's called a grind, not a glide. Just push more.

    The thing is, unless your indoor park has zero upkeep, nothing needs wax. Indoor parks are notoriously overly slick. There are some parks around here that'll straight up kick you out if you wax shit because it's just dangerous. It's not like you have to haul ass to grind on angle iron anyway. If the box is by chance kinda sticky, people will wax it like it's a chunky concrete ledge even though they're just tic-tacking up to it.

    I also love the sound and feeling of actually grinding.

    The only time I've ever waxed any metal object was after it rained. I can't stand people who wax shit especially if they don't bother to tell anyone. I fucked my tail bone up badly because someone wax the handrail at our old park and didn't tell anyone. All you have to do is go faster and as far as boardslides etc go just wax your damn board not the damn thing everyone else is skating.

    I only skate the schools and shit around here so there's no problem with me waxing shit, or if I wax a box it's something I made.

    Didn't realize wax at a park was such a big first world problem.
