Can you mix a regular wax and fluoro wax when waxing your skis?

Yes, but why would you? If a low fluoro wax is needed ... then use a low fuoro ... which is less expensive than mixing a non-fluoro one with a high fluoro one. I use the super expensive one's when racing, keep my race skis "prepped" with a high quality non-fluoro wax and only use the fluoro for a race. For my recreational skis they just have a quality non-fluoro wax on them.

Do you wax water skis?

No, you should not wax scaled cross-country skis. This style of ski is scaled for the purpose of not having to wax at all. However, if you want to improve your speed on scaled skis, you could glide wax the bottoms of your skis outside of the scaled area. Glide wax is a type of hard wax applied by melting, ironing, and scraping the ski. It is different from kick wax, which is a sticky wax that would be applied in place of scales.
