hey what's up guys so I don't know if you saw the other day but I hit a rock with my snowboard and it created a pretty big sort of like gouge in the base of my board so I'm just going to fix it now and also wax my board so that the base is all fresh and good to go for riding so yeah I'll show you guys the gouge right here so as you can see it's a pretty deep and there's some yeah there's some damage still around that needs to be removed so I got a few things here to help me fix my base I got a cleaner I've got wax to wax it after with the scraper and then I've got a few tools piece X so this is what you can fill gouges in your base with lighter to melt the pfx on and they've also got a razor and an exacto knife and I can cut out any extra damage and the iron as well okay so I'm going to start just by cutting out any of this extra damage to the board all right so I think I've gotten most of the loose stuff out with the utility knife I was going to come over it with the razor just to make sure that area is nice and flat and smooth okay so the razor just kind of a skimmed up across any small bits that might have been sticking up so next I'm just going to give the area clean and then they can start getting the ptex melted into that spot and you actually want to make sure that you fill you overfill the spot you have to go over it a few times just to make sure that it's completely filled in so you want to hold the ptex right close to the board and then you have this blue flame and it's just going to burn a bit cleaner so I'm just going to let that dry for about 20 20 minutes and then once it's dry going to give it a scrape so that it kills the excess off and yeah and I'll move on so waxing the board okay so the ptex is all cooled so now I'm just going to take rigid blade and scrape off all the excess make it nice and smooth all right so I got a smooth day with the razor and next I'm going to take some sandpaper and just rub some sandpaper back and forth this is going to rough it up a bit and which is important if you want the wax to stick to it if it's too smooth then the wax won't stick cool so I think it came out pretty good it's nice and smooth so next it's going to heat up the iron and melt the wax on give the board a good whack so I just drip the wax around the board especially near the edges typically where your face gets the driest is right beside the edge of your board you don't need to put too much wax on but once you get it dripped on then you just go over it with the iron and you just want to keep your iron moving so that you don't you know make any part of the base Q hot and yeah just work the wax all around your board all right so I got the wax spread across the base of the board so I'm just going to let it dry for about 30 minutes and then the way you can tell that it's done that you you know you touch it and if it's cool then all the wax is absorbed into the base of your board and then at that point you just get your scraper and start scraping it all off cool guys so got all the wax scraped off the board got a big mess to clean up now and the board is pretty much back to normal hopefully that repair holds well and it's all good to go for the next day of riding I don't know if you guys noticed but I actually picked up a new board so I'm going to be riding that from now on but this is my backup board so if anything happens with my new one this is my backup or if I have any friends that come and visit and want to snowboard two rides and they can use this and I hope these tips will help you guys with any repairs or waxing or maintenance that you need to do to your board and for more tips check your it's a snowboard gear playlist there's lots of videos on there to help you out with your snowboard gear and also click the subscribe button because I'm uploading new videos all the time so thanks for watching guys have fun out there riding and I'll see in the next video soon

    thanks for the instructions, very helpful. Curious though- Just how much does it matter to repair every gouge and nick in your board? Does it really, truly effect speed? It does not seem to matter and I guess I could make a fair comparison myself but, with you having much more experience than me, wonder if you have actually compared the difference? I would guess speed would be the only factor? thank you from Arizona

    Hi! I need an advice.. Used snowboard with nose and tail guards(good price deal DC snowboard). Should I buy this snowboard, take off these guards and repair holes or not buy it? Or maybe buy it ant leave these guards on?

    It helps if you gauge the area you are going to fill with Ptex so it can hold on to the base and not fall out

    People are doing this sand paper trick so the wax absorbs into the p-tex repair? P-tex isn't a sintered base. It will last one run on the fixed spot before the wax rubs off. P.S. you're from New York I can tell

    What a tard, he literally made the damage bigger for absolutely no reason. There is no good reason to do that. You just start laughing out the damage right from the start you don't make it bigger!
