Default what tune-ups are necessary?

So i just got a used board and the board is in really good shape, but I still wanted to ask what tune ups I should look into getting before riding it.

I've never been snowboarding before, but im assuming I should get the edges touched up and the board waxed?

careful... dont just go into a shop throwing tune-up around... you'll pay for the works when you only want a sharpen and wax.
if you have any base reapairs get a tune up. otherwise only ask to get her sharpened and waxed. at my shop i jsut saved you 20$

It might not even need the edges sharpened.... Or waxed....

If the board looks like it's dry and kinda getting white and almost flaky looking then it probably needs wax.

If you rub the edges with your bare fingers and it feels sharp, or nearly sharp, you're probably ok there as well.

Especially being a beginner, sharp edges can be bad. It can increase your chances of catching an edge and falling by a ton.
