So i never actually bought a new board like fresh off the factory floor like i always just bought a used one cuz never really had cash for a brand new one....anyways i just bought the DC PBJ and i wanted to know if theres anything in particular that needs to be done like a fresh hand wax or edge tuning...i know it comes from the factory with like a cheap wax job like from a machine so any advice or just strap in and drop in? peace

If you drop in on factory wax, your base will be dry by the first run. Detune the tip and tail, give her a fresh wax and be on your way.

most boards come waxed and ready to use. not always the best wax job tho, might wanna de-tune your edges 8-10" front and rear, other than that should be good to go. Also when you do wax it, loosen off your binding screws so the heat from the iron doesn't make a permanent crater (barely visible but it's a deformity that can be avoided) from the screws pulling up, holding everything tight. Good luck and have fun with your new board!
