For those special skis / snowboards that deserve to be in tip-top condition!
In this service, additional time and steps are allocated to go above and beyond a standard edge & wax to produce the best results possible.
Extra time and steps are allocated to cleaning and prepping the bases, base edge angles / bevels are tuned in addition to a standard side edge tune and a temperature-specific (not universal) hot wax is used. Any additional tuning requests / preferences are also carried out.
This service could be great for:
Those that want the highest performance from their gear
Prepping race skis / boards
Bringing old favourites back to their former glory
Gear that has been in storage for years
Anyone with specific tuning needs / requests

1.2 - The bases are brushed with a stiff bronze brush to remove any remaining wax and dirt from the structure of the base.
1.3 - The bases are wiped down with a base cleaner and cloth to finish off the cleaning process, leaving the bases ready for their fresh hot wax to be applied.
Phase 2 - Tuning The Edges
2.1 - A diamond file is run across the base and side edges to remove any burs, lumps or bumps.
2.2 - Any rust is removed with a coarse pocket stone and gummy stone.

2.4 - The side edge angles are tuned to factory specification or any angle requested.
2.5 - Any special tuning requests e.g. tip / tail detuning is carried out.
Phase 3 - Hot Wax
3.1 - A generous amount of temperature-specific wax is applied to the base at the appropriate temperature.
3.2 - The wax is left to set for at least an hour to ensure maximum absorption.
