Best Answer

You use skateboard wax to grind on stuff like curbs on sidewalks or handrails or rails. You rub the wax on the spot of the rail or curb that you want to grind on, and if you really want an effective "grind" you can rub the wax onto your trucks. Keep in mind that the more wax you put on the more slippery it will be.
