Works good if you put the wax on straight back and forth. Go the width of the board then the length of the board or vice versa for a complete coverage. Use a large bar like sex wax for a base then use a sticky wax for the last coat since it comes in a smaller package. I wax every session in the winter cause where you gonna put a bar to take with you. Wax is temperature coded so you have to change the wax per the rise and fall of the water temps.
