Proper tuning of your skis and snowboards will prolong the life of your equipment. Tuning your equipment will ensure it runs true, flat and catch free. Skis and Snowboards will glide faster and initiate turns quicker when correctly tuned and waxed. Tuning your skis & snowboard involves three primary steps:
• Base repair • Edge work • Waxing
How do you know if you need to tune your skis? First, look at the base for scrapes, exposed holes into the core, no structure, blunt/rusted edges, no wax etc. If this is the case you need a tune and or a wax.
Everyone gets some base damage at some point, usually from skiing over a rock that’s not covered by enough snow. A gash in your base affects how well your skis / snowboard glides, so it’s important to repair the damage.
Our modern Wintersteiger stone grinder will give your ride a perfectly flat and structured base for the snow conditions wherever you’re headed.
Rust and burrs on your ski edges cause drag and slow you down on firm snow; so, getting rid of these abrasions can help your skis and boards perform to their best.
Our Wintersteiger ceramic edger will grind the perfect base and side edge angles, leaving a clean micro-serrated edge that is sharper and harder wearing than a traditionally sharpened edge.
Waxing your skis is the best way to protect them and keep them performing at in peak conditions. It’s important to wax your skis and snowboards after completing base repair and edge work, as well as throughout the ski season to ensure your skis glide smoothly. Waxing every three or four outings is a good practice.
Ski and snowboard bases are porous and need hot waxing to enable them to slide smoothly over snow. Hot waxing is the key. It makes your ride feel like you are being pushed along by the hand of God.
A friendly tip - when you return home from your snow adventure bring your board or skis and we will put a storage wax on ( $20 ). Living in Queensland over the summer months bases can dry out due to the heat and humidity. Applying a storage wax will keep the base of your board or skis nicely moisturized over the summer months and have you good to go with a quick scrape back for your next trip.
