    Could be the deck had a film and or some residue on it. Of what I have no idea but I swear by Zog's (sex wax) Quick Humps. You might want to start over and get all the wax off, I use a hair dryer to warm up the wax. Once its all off use 409 something like it and a towel and give her a good buffing. When putting a fresh coat on straight back and forth strokes, not circular and not too much pressure. She should develop some bumps in no time and eventually turn into a busty beauty. Wax on wax off...

    Leave in the sun for a few minutes or heat with hair-drier and scrape off the wax. Strip residue with Firewater or other wax stripper available in most surf shops. Re-wax with a basecoat then wax over basecoat with cool. Apply as SeaDaddy said.

    Like suggested above use a base coat then wax away. What brand of wax are you using? Some waxes are known to wear off quicker than others.
