Forums Tips & Questions best way to remove skins?? Viewing 8 posts - 1 through 8 (of 8 total) Author Posts March 17, 2009 at 2:48 am #571431 srinath 10 Posts I was wondering what is the safest way to remove the skins from your boards without messing up the base. Is there a tool to stick under the skins, or a special way to apply them (ie. folding over…)? Thanks in advance.

Now i try to get at least one day in bounds after waxing before putting the skins on, but I’ve never had a problem before, but I thought I should ask for more opinions… March 17, 2009 at 9:26 pm #615614 split.therapy 455 Posts I have always hot waxed my boards. It seems best to use temperature appropriate wax, scrape really well, brush pretty aggressively with a copper and a nylon brush and buff with a Scotch Brite pad. No problems so far.

I’m thinking of slapping a small duct-tap flap to help with this. Viewing 8 posts - 1 through 8 (of 8 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
