I'm a fan of doing things myself, so when I found this wax on sale, I figured I would try it out. It's pretty awesome - smells great, applies smooth, and it did a great job keeping my board in shape over the summer. It also lasts quite a while - I barely used any of the stick even after applying a coat on my board for summer storage. I am not a huge fan of the cork on top - but if I needed to use it quick in a warm car before heading to the hill it would work, but I usually carry a small scraper and a buff pad in my gear kit. Otherwise, if you're not into the hot wax or just to lazy or cheap to do it, I'd recommend you pick this up.
