yea laquer it dude. trevor laquered my mike s 3 brick ledge and it was great.
as for mikkel yes people buy crete obstacles to ride on crete but nowadays crete obstacles come prelaquered. no one that i know shreds on unlaquered and unwaxed concrete if it needs it because it ruins your deck and trucks, its really hard to grind on and slide on. the bbb and cracked crete obstacles are both laquered thats why no wax is needed. and when i got my klotz it was a little sticky so it just needs like one glide of wax or if you dont wanna do that then id laquer it. the grinding surface just needs to wear in a little bit

lightly coat the laquer, it makes it smooth as fook but doesnt take away the crete feel, also spread superglue on the top of the klotz block, it will make it grind <3

klotz just need a break in period, and you can wax it and melt it then do a few grinds on a td or something to get rid of the messy bits

You could break it in by grinding it a bunch, and it will work great.

Laquer will kind of "harden" it and give it a different feeling.

they also sale a concrete sealer that is like laquer, I have used it on 2 of my concrete parks. lowes or homedepot . but I usually just use plain laquer as it is cheaper and seals the concrete well but that's a whole nother topic really.

Ya no problem, and ya it's nice to see more older riders on here for me as well. I didn't even realize your age when I posted. to bad were 3000 miles apart. Its pretty lonely here in Arkansas being the only fingerboarder, that I know of anyhow.lol...
