And in this clip, we're going to go over buffing a snowboard. Buffing a snowboard normally occurs after you've waxed and scraped your board. Last step is buffing. It's what basically creates that nice shiny sheen on the base of the board making it really shiny and poppy. And again, using a buffing tool, it's kind of like a Brillo pad, but very specific for buffing. You just want to smooth the wax out. Smoothing the wax out, again, create a nice sheen for the base of the board, reducing the amount of friction between the snow and the board and doing nice, even strokes. You know you're done when you see no scratches, no lines, no lines from where you were scraping the board, and nice, even sheen. Very, very shiny. Very, very smooth. Ready to rock and roll.
