Here I show basic ski waxing. Nothing fancy. You reap what you sow. I can assure you that it would be a rare "shop" that would take this much time on your skis.
It's just too much time for a 10 to 20 dollar wax job. Nobody can make any money this way. Yet I as an independent, I do spend this much time on many skis for real.
This is the advantage of learning to do your own waxing. You can spend as much time as you like. If you ski a lot it's a good thing to learn.
Please don't skip ahead when viewing as I talk the whole time and that is also part of the lesson, plus you see in real time just how long it can take to do a good job that will make the wax job last more than just a few days.
Happy waxing to you!
PS the skis have been brushed out thoroughly prior to this waxing. Always clean your bases before waxing by brushing with brass at a minimum. I like to clean first with "Swix Glide Wax Cleaner". Google that for my video on using that method.
