Default slide board surface is wearing down quickly

Hello, I am not a speed skater but have been using a power pro roll up slide board. After a month of use, I have had a significant slowing in the middle of the board. I have used non wax polish and other products but feel that it is the board just wearing down quickly. Has anyone had this type of problem with other slide boards, or is it just a cheap model. Thank you, Sean

Default

i've never seen a poyethylene slide board, most are formica or similar.
' power-systems.com' seems to be the maker of your slide-board, and at $250 for a 1/4"x2'x7' unbacked piece of poly, it seems like a supreme rip-off to me.
polyethylene has several commercial densities, and is used for just about everything depending on density, and that would dictate it's relative slickness, not to mention the manufacturing process; perhaps if you buffed the sticky area with a high-speed drill/buffer attachment, it would help.

Default side board

Thank you for your repy, I will try that. Does anyone have a problem with their side board slowing down significantly.
