Jon Depoian is a skateboard instructor and owner of Intro2Skateboarding, an organization based in Orange County, California that offers both beginners and experienced skateboarding lessons for beginners and experienced skateboarders. Candle wax is also a good alternative to ice skate wax. Make a base wax by melting candles or crayons in the oven, or do it on a stovetop to keep a closer eye on quality. While it doesn’t work quite as well and you need to apply more of it, it does.
Jon has over 21 years of skateboarding experience and over 10 years of skateboarding experience. However, if you are using candles as wax, make sure it is a fragrance-free candle.
