    Thanks, I could post a video, but It wouldn't be till I wax the board again.

    The trick is patience, after you get a good bottom layer stuck to the board, just keep rubbing the wax lightly in different directions. I use a "grid pattern" by rubbing wax horizontally all along the board, then vertically.

    If you rub too hard, it will flatten out any bumps that are trying form, just remember it takes a while for bumps to form.

    After that, I just rub on sticky bumps wax or whatever else I can find that's good and sticky (you don't need that much, just a good top sticky layer - you'll put on a new layer every time you go out, it's sorta temporary)

    ok well i have a basecoat bar and then a warm tropical bar. so should i make the bumps with the basecoat bar and then put a thin coating of warm tropical over that? or should i just put a thin layer of basecoat on and then make the bumps using the warm tropical bar?

    I like to make the bumps with the base coat, because it holds up better, and then the top, sticky coat is relatively thinner.

    Question Question on wax - off the topic

    Sticky Bumps makes a surf board and bodyboard wax.

    Is there a difference or just a BS marketing ploy?

    BTW: Ledzep, amazing wax job. You should do a video on swellinfo tutorials.

    I use sticky bumps base coat, and then a top coat. I've use sticky bumps for years, but recently have been trying Magma and it has been working really well.

    I second that palmers is definitely the way to go. All that other stuff is crap. Palmers can be tough to find around here for some reason though.
