Alright, now I am going to talk to you about another purpose wax is used for in skiing and snowboarding and it’s for storage. Along with protecting the ski on the snow and keeping water repelling off of it, it can project ski in the closet or wherever you keep your skis and protect moisture from seeping into that permeable space. You also want to keep the edges of the ski good and sharp over the summer or spring or whenever 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 you wax normally, you stop half way and you use a little bit more wax. This is going to be done, the same way essentially starting now as we would wax the ski in any other circumstance. You want to clean the base of the ski, make sure there is nothing in between the wax and the base so that it really gets right into the base and there is no dirt or anything excess that could cause problems in the future. And once again we want to make sure that this is dry before adding wax otherwise, the wax won’t be able to get in there. Okay. So, I’ve got a hot iron and a bar of universal wax. In this case it does not matter what kind of wax you’re using because you’re only using it for storage and you’re going to want to re-wax these skis before you actually go skiing on them, so the cheaper the wax the better, especially because you have to use more of it than in general purposes. Now, I am going really drip 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 store your skis it’s a good idea not to put them in a garage or somewhere that is subjectable to different temperature or moisture. It’s good to actually keep them in your house if possible, that way they don’t get too rusted, although if you do this they shouldn’t get rusted at all. Okay. Once again, I am going to let the iron do the work for me. I really just want to let the heat spread the wax out and now I am just going to make sure that everything is dripping over the side of the ski and sort of guide it to do so, that way you do protect your edges from any rust. If you do get rust on your edges, the edge is going to no longer be dull and it’s going to sort of a road away and the only way to fix that is with the tune. Now, tunes, in general, are great thing for skis but you don’t want to get a needless tune because it does take the life of ski away from the ski a little bit. You are grinding off a little bit of that edge. So, its one thing to ski a lot, a need to tune and a whole other thing to not take care of your skis and have to get it tune because your edges are rusted. I just want to totally cover the ski. Now I’m just watching the wax dripped down the edge, make sure its fully covering it, the top and the side of the edge that is. Alright, 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.
