TUNING

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.

BASE REPAIR

Everyone gets some base damage at some point, usually from skiing/riding
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.


 

EDGE WORK

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

Waxing your skis is the best way to protect them and keep them performing at
its best 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 apply a storage wax ($20). When living in Queensland
over the summer month’s 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, the edges are not rusted and have you
good to go with a quick scrape back for your next trip saving you time and
money.

In our Brisbane store we offer hardware services in our workshop. Our
technician will tune and service your skis or board to make them look like new
again and keep you belting down the hill like a pro.
