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.

on this topic, what's the opinion on waxing?
i've been iron waxing my board and tele skis blissfully ignorant for a while now, but i was just informed by the dude at the ski shop that I should probably use something else (there's this cream thing) to prevent ruining the glue.
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...

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.
