Waxing board.

The scraper/brush thing, is using an ice scraper ok? or is there something special about a snowboard specific scraper.. brush? (the brush to create grooves after scraping/buffing)

I wouldn't use an ice scrapper because, based on the ones I've used, ice scrappers have some sharp ridges which, if it catches on your base, will gouge it.

I used an old ID card once. It takes forever but it works. A plastic ruler works well too but a scraper is a good investment.

"And get it waxed. I want to wax it. Wax it! You know, and air dry. Air dry that shit, yeah!"

Just go to home depot or something and pick up a sheet of plexi. Cut to size and use. I've used teh same plexi cut for the past few seasons.

Make sure you finish up with a good short bristled brush, I noted doing noticed a huge improvement when I started using the brush to finish.
