Hello everybody, I have an inquiry regarding surfing board support and I thought I'd give it a shot here.
I'm working with a Sydney cleaners group and we got a demand for cleaning a surfboard. I don't have much involvement with surfing ( I know it's a stunner, given the astonishing shorelines in the place where I grew up ), so I chose I'd ask somebody encountered and Swellnet's gathering resembles the ideal place to do as such.
The surfboard has some sort of solidified foul solidified development and our customers need to have it expelled. I needed to go the additional mile and apply a favor wax or something ( you all can give a few thoughts ) to improve it look even and demonstrate the person the amount we adore our customers. Any thoughts?
Much appreciated ahead of time!

Take it to a surfboard factory........or try thinners.
Start with a wax comb or plastic scraper to get the wax off. If the wax is hard, you can warm it up first (hair dryer, hot damp towel or just leave it in the sun for 20 mins) to soften it. Have to get as much off this way as you can, until there are just spots or streaks left.
If you need to get all the wax off completely, the best thing I've fond is foam dust. Grab a handful from your shaper and rub it around the wax. With a little effort, all the wax will rub off. It is possible to minimize mess by putting the dust in a stocking and using the stocking (but you'll still have some wax residue).
I would steer clear of acetone and wax dissolvers. Unless you go the extra length of getting those off, they leave a film on your board. This can mean your next wax job comes straight off. Much easier to rub the wax off dry with foam dust or alike.
Instead of foam dust you can use shadecloth it acts like a fine scourer.
Shellite will get rid of wax ASAP.
Very sneaky way of plugging your cleaning company. Not a chance in hell this is a legit question!
Exactly..you a commercial cleaning comp and your asking how to remove a waxy film?
Why would you bother?
Now you tell me.
And I’ve just signed up for the Antarctic blue super sports wagon with CB and optional rally fun pack.
Posted in the appropriate forum category at the very least.
Acetone is best for the cleaning
Becareful using acetone as it will remove any clear coat from the board too. Not many "label " boards have resin gloss coat anymore. Most are sprayed with clear.
