Hey Chams... congrats on your new board. One good thing about the Recon is that it needs very little maintenance. Unlike sintered bases on higher end boards, the extruded base on the Recon does not need to be consistently waxed. Technically it doesn't ever have to be waxed. That doesn't mean that you can't... it just isn't mandatory. If you do choose to wax this board, all you will need is a machine wax (an iron wax will cost more and will not give any more advantage on this type of base). A few small things you can do to keep your board in prime shape is to check for and remove rust on the edges, and keep it in a bag as much as possible. You will probably want to get your edges sharpened and base structured once or twice a season (depending on how much you are riding), but other than that just repair your damages as early as possible and have fun.
