Jun 11, 2006 by mgm

This looks like a cool trick. I have not tried it yet. If you try it tell me how it works out.

Wow, talk about criminal damage

Notice how the before/after comparison is made when the dry ledge is unwaxed, whereas afterwards it has lacquer and wax on it. You'd get a slick ledge with enough wax, and it wouldn't cost you $18 and several hours of skate time

What exactly does the lacquer do? Maybe you could skip the sanding without using a whole bar of wax if you use lacquer.

The laquer is basically a spray-on varnish, it'd make the ledge super-smooth and, in turn, reduce the amount of friction

Wow, that's really not worth it if you ask me. Possible fine, lot of work. They could just FIND a better one to do, or make one.

You have to admit its creative.....but here in NYC (and anywhere for that matter) if you get caught.....thats ur ass right there....I would just use wax.....a lot of people would think that wax is just as bad as that laquer thing, but in LOTS places like Flushing MEadow park.....they "Sand Blast" The wax away....so it isnt really a problem....that ledge WAS pretty slick though....i give an A for creativness
