I live on Vancouver Island. “Wet Coast”. Playing outside here, near the ocean, with wind blown ocean spray I definitely avoid. Kind of sucks because I’m a kite boarder too. So after kiting I practice hidden away to keep my precious Pantheon Steel Halo safe. Later in the evening it’s just really damp and humid. Slightly less bad but around a campfire I risk it, sometimes. I use saved desiccant packs and stow them in a cotton bag in my soft case and in my pan… and even at home these days I practice indoors because I don’t know what to apply.
The big question I have here in Canada… what product, available in Canada, to apply to protect and maintain my hand pan? Phoenix makes one that reviews well but Amazon wasn’t doing much with that in Canada even before 2020 world crisis. Frog lube has mixed reviews and now I read coconut oil… anybody else with this problem?
