My opinion is you should wax. First of all, a factory wax that your board came with is really not very good. I always wax new boards to get a better wax job than the factory. Even if I didn't, I'd want to re-wax within 4 days riding on the factory wax as I imagine it was pretty well degraded by that 4th day. Secondly, wax does not hold up over time - like the amount of time it has sat since last winter.

Good luck,
