David Sangillo: Alright. Now, I’m going to talk to you about another purpose wax is used for in ski and snowboarding, that’s for storage. Along with protecting the ski on the snow and keeping water repelling off of it, it can protect ski and the classic or wherever you keep your skies and protect moisture from seeping into the Permian space.
You also want to keep the edges of the ski good and sharp over the summer or spring or whenever you stop skiing and a great way to do that is to just sort of throw some extra wax on the ski. The same way that your wax normally, only a step half way and use a little bit more wax. This is going to be done in the same way essentially starting out, as we would wax the ski in any other circumstance.
You want to clean -- make sure there is nothing in between the wax and the base so that it goes right into the base and there is no direct or anything excess that could cause problems in the future. And then once again, we want to make sure that this is drive for adding wax otherwise the wax won’t be able o get in there. So, I’ve got a hot iron, and bar of universal wax.
In this case, it does not matter, what kind of wax you’re using so because you’re only using it for storage and you’re going to want to rewax the ski before you actually go skiing on, so the cheaper the wax the better; especially because we have to use more of it, and then general purposes. Now, I’m going to really direct this wax on, really cake the ski with it; reason being, I want this wax to actually drip off the edges of the ski and cover the whole edge sealing it from any water or moisture or anything like that.
When you do score your skies, it’s a good idea not to put them in a grass or some or that is subjectible to different temperature or moisture, it’s good to actually keep them in your house if possible where they get don’t get too rusted, although if you do this, they shouldn’t get rusted at all. Once again, I’m going to -- let the iron do the work for me and I really just want to let the heat spread the wax out, and now I’m just going to make sure that everything is dripping over the side of the ski and so to guide it to do so. That while you do protect your edges from any rust, if you do get rusts on your edges the edge is going to no longer be dealt and it’s going to sort of roade away and the only way to fix that is with the tool.
Now, there are a great thing for skies, but you don’t want to get a needless toon because it does take the life of the ski away from the ski a little bit, you are grinding off a little bit of that edge. So, it’s one thing to ski out and needed to and a whole other thing to not take care of your skies and you have to get a -- because your edges are rusted. And you just want totally cover the ski. Just watching. That wax strip down the edge, make sure it’s fully covered in it. the tuck and the side of the edge that is. Now you want to let that cool just because it’s hot sticky wax, you don’t want to get all over your things and in the meantime you can go do what you like, essentially, you’re ready to store your ski and this is going to seal up everything for you.
