I was really excited for this board but after 3 months of riding her I have been sorely disappointed. Most of the boards I have ridden will hold a wax for at least 2 - 3 months. I have to wax this sucker just about every week. I have tried many different techniques but this board will just not hold a wax. The other disappoint I have had is with the craftsmanship of the board. Just not a well made board.
