Question Do I need to remove summer wax?

I had my board waxed for summer storage and now winter is on its way again. There is a thick coat on my board and I'm wondering if I'm supposed to scrape it off and get it re-waxed or if it's good to go? Is there a difference between this wax and the wax that goes on during the winter? Some advice would be greatly appreciated

If you had it waxed at a shop for summer storage, then they probably just used an inexpensive, all temp wax.

Scape it and then ride the rest off

scrape it, then brush it if you have a brush, or brush it with one of those green scrubby dish mats, then ride away.

Likely it was a cheap all temp, so don't expect too much longevity out of it. Ride it for a couple of days and then get a good all temp put on.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

Scrape, brush and rewax.

The summer storage wax may be a "warm temp" wax, which is inappropriate wax until you hit the spring conditions.
