I got an idea:

ship the board and bindings to me... I'll set it up, and ride it for a few times. After hitting a few rails, jumps and carving some groomers, it'll be nicely detuned fer ya. I'll even have it waxed (my board guy does it for free) ad ship 'er back to ya... ready to ride!

Yeah, is actully a really good idea. I fully suppport it. Also, if you would like a second opinion (they are well advised) on how Kri$ did with the break-in, I'd also be happy to offer my services!

Well, since Kri$ is gonna have it here in Toronto, might as well take the opportunity and I'll even give you my amateur opinion of the board and bindings too. I'll make sure to catch lots of edges while learning. It's a promise!

I am in the same boat.

New Millinium3 Discord. Bindings mounted to my stance and ready to roll...

I think I will take it someplace for a "detune" and "wax" by them

I will be a week in Snowmass and I think a good wax should last while I am there? Or should I have it redone 1/2 way through the trip?

wax your board. yes it comes from the factory pre-waxed but its usually not very good quality wax.

you do not need to tune/sharpen your edges. this is done from the factory.

do not detune your edges if your not riding park.

too many different stories

Place where I am renting skiing gear for my little brother and fiancee is going to do it for me for free. I asked them what I "should" do and that I rent there every year and they found my family in there a lot of times. So freebie on that end and I will tell them I just ride all mountain, if there is a jump in the middle of the run I'll hit and do a 360 or whatever but I don't seek out the park.

They should be able to set me up proper.

Damn I just got my first board and all this shit is getting me nervous...detuning and waxing and all that. I'm going out this Saturday and now I'm all worried about board maintenance.
