Hi all, firstly I must say thankyou for all of the advice, and know-how you guys happily share with this board. I have been relgiously following this board the past 3 years and have learnt a hell of a lot!
Now, I have an usuaual question, that I hope someone can help me with. My 8 year old has started race training at that local club, and he is training slalom gates 3 times a week. I generally wax his skis once a week, and usually go over the edges with a diamond stone to keep things sharp. but, for some reason, even after 1 training session the wax towards the edges take on a greyish colour.
I waxed his skis yesterday, scraped, and then went over firstly with a horse hair, and then nylon roto brush...They looked great, then when I took the photos after training, you can see what they look like:
The snow itself was a mixture of fresh and some man-made.
Is it because the skis are a few years old, and might need a base grind? I used http://www.swixsport.com/Products/Wax-Tuning/Glider/Base-Prep-Universal/UR8-Red-Bio-Racing-Wax-180g. when I do my skis they never look like this - even after a weeks riding...
So, what can I do? Or, more importantly, what am I doing wrong?
ps. the scratches look worse than what they are...:-)
Any help is much appreciated!
