Just a reminder that Avie’s Ski / Sports will be hosting Bruce Diehl from SWIX this Thursday, December 13th at 6:00 PM, for a tuning clinic.
Hear from SWIX—the folks that make ski and snowboard tuning tools and wax—how to keep your gear in tiptop shape.
If you have been thinking about tuning your own skis or snowboard, this Thursday is the day to turn thought into action.
The SWIX tuning clinic will take place at Avie’s Ski / Sports at 100 Main Street in Westerly, RI.
The SWIX Tuning Clinic is FREE
Bruce Diehl from SWIX will demonstrate the following tuning tasks:
- Shaping, sharpening, and maintaining edges
- Cleaning the base
- Choosing and applying the proper wax
- Proper scraping technique
- Hand and roto-brushing
Waxing Is Critical
During the SWIX tuning clinic, Bruce will show how to apply wax, then remove it properly by scraping. That will be followed by a demonstration of how to buff the base to a super slick, super fast finish. When you see me go flying by you on a flatter section of the ski slope, it’s not because I’m such a wonderful skier. It’s because I’m such a wonderful ski waxer! Wax makes a huuuuuuuge difference!
For those who attend the clinic, Avie’s Ski / Sports will offer 20% discount on SWIX tuning tools and supplies directly following the clinic.
Thursday December 13th at 6:00 PM.
See you there.
