Title: Breaking in tile/granite
Post by: john on February 07, 2013, 07:44:13 PM
Im not sure what the material is, but its been a bitch trying to break it in. I moved to Vietnam and as far as I know Im the only one skating this spot. wax is taking forever and theres a ton to skate, if only itd grind. anyone have any suggestions?

try using clear coat, enamel, laquer, thompson's water seal, or whatever. Spray or brush a little on the edges you want to grind, let it dry and wax over that. Good luck! Also, try using an old truck hanger to grind it in rather than the one's you ride.

are you sure that won't grind? It looks pretty good to go if you ask me. Go fast and lean back.
