Default Un waxing my board?

Hey everyone I'm new here and new to snowboarding in general. I have a Burton board that I bought from a friend that only rode it one time so the board is in great condition. I took it out last night and had a good time on it but realized the board is extremley fast, Ithink there might be wax or something on the bottom, is there and way to "slow down" my board so I'm not blazing down the hill and crashing every 5 seconds? It makes it kind of hard when your trying to learn, thanks for the help!

Learn how to use it bud ) =

The only way I know of "un waxing" a board is by using it.

Just work on your speed checking more and spend less time flat basing

You just gotta learn to ride it. No de-waxing will prevent you from catching an edge.

Snowboards are not snow sleds. You don't just point them down the hill and hold on. If that is what you are doing then it is the absolute worst way to learn to board and will get you hurt sooner then later.

before you purchased the board, did you have any prior experience?

do not remove the wax...this will damage your board in the long run.

keep up on the learning process.
