Not Really The Bottoms Of Scooters Are pretty Slick When It Comes To Grinding Flat Bars

But i do think grinding on a curb is harder to grind without wax on your scooter, so i think you do need a little waxing to the bottom of your scooter (because a curb isn't as slick as flat bar)

No, you just need enough speed to get you all the way down the rail.

Depends on the rail and speed your going. Some wax is nice but not always needed.

What do you use skateboard wax for?

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.

Also, keep in mind that the wax is made to rub on curbs, rails and stairs to make them slick and smooth. A candle may-or-may not be a thick enough wax to lay down on some of these surfaces. Many skatebord companies sell the wax blocks now pretty cheap. Note: Surf wax is NOT the same thing as Skate wax. So don't waste your money on Mr. Zogg's.

How do you wax a skateboard?

To take wax off a surfboard you need to leave it in the sun for half an hour, so that the wax melts. You can sometimes simply wipe/scrape it off with a wax comb or a butter knife carefully.

If it was a surfboard you could try a little turps, but i would use turps sparingly on a body board as it coulc eat away at the foam,

When working with wax what are some safety precautions?

Hair needs to be away from the wax. Sleeves need to be enclosed so that wax doesn't get into your sleeves. Safety goggles need to be close by if the wax gets above 60 degrees. In summary, protect yourself from burns or from getting something you are wearing in the wax or near the heat source that melts wax. And protect your eyes. Always.

What is the wax for on skateborads?

The wax on a skateboard typically comes from the wax on a rail or ledge. The wax on a curb or rail makes it slick. On a dry rail(no wax) and dry skateboard, it's unpredictable how the board will slide. If you wax the rail, you will have a smooth, fast grind/slide every time. You can also use bar soap. For concrete curbs and ledges the wax fills in all the gritty areas on the edge. I've grinded curbs that felt like metal. You just have to push with all your weight when you wax it. Another fun/dangerous thing to do with wax is... find a nice smooth blacktop parking lot and wax the ground. Get some buddies and see who can powerslide the farthest. Our marks measured 20+ feet! But I'm pretty sure this is in no way legal.
