It’s squeaking!

Biscuit by HamboardsAs you may know, I’m a beginner at land-surfing and this summer was dedicated to masterize the art of standing on a board without breaking my leg, arm or wrist.

Biscuit by HamboardsI must admit I succeeded after a lot of patience and hours of practice.

Now, as any board, mine is squeaking a bit, and I hate that!

So I went on YouTube to find the solution and apparently the key is to use household paraffin. I decided to hike to CVS and the only paraffin I found was “Hawaiian scent”, so let’s go to Hawaii.
Basically, the guy on YouTube said to peel the paraffin with a cutter and cover the bolts and nuts with the paraffin chips. It smelled good, worked a bit but I wasn’t fully satisfied as it was still squeaking …

… still squeaking until the big Pete Hamborg from Hamboards shared with me one of his secrets and I will Biscuit by Hamboardsshare his enlightenment with you too!
To stop squeaking, use lip balm!

I clean my bolts and nuts from the paraffin and started the process all over again with the lip balm and … I’m back to land-surfing in peace and silence, it worked!!!

If you are not into skateboard, this works too with a squeaking door … Just saying.

PS: Thanks Pete!!!
