I’m Phil here at Ski Chalet in Arlington, Virginia. And now that we have wax the board we’ve let it cool and we’ve taken a good amount of time to let cool back to room temperature, we’re already ready to scrape the board. Scrapers come in all sizes and shapes, we’ve got several here. Okay and I’ll probably use all of them in the process. Basically, there are plexiglass, you can use a plain plexiglass scraper like that or you can use manufacturers, different manufacturer’s board’s scrapers. You just basically start with the edge of the scraper and you're going to scrape from one end to the other board scraping the wax off as you go. This is where the process gets messy, why I do my skis boards here at the shop not at my house. If you want to do it, go ahead just understand you're going to make a mess. So, its nice to have a dedicated area where you do your waxing, the joke here in the shop is we haven’t seen the floor under this bench in about five years that’s in too much wax on it. But you want to scrape the wax, always down the length of the board, never across, we’ll talk about why we do that way in the second, when we talk about brushing instruction, but you want to scrape the wax basically its counter into it. And if you think you want to leave with much wax on the board as possible that’s wrong. You want to scrape as much off the board as possible. While we’re talking about putting it on, keeping in mind that you have to scrape that off. So, don’t put more wax on the board than you need. All you're doing is making more work for yourself. If you want to scrape a wax until you stop seeing wax come off the board with the edge of the scraper. See have now there is very little coming off with the scraper it means we’re almost done. So that’s scraping, the next step brushing it out to get structure in to it so that the board flows over the liquid surface to the snow.
