Basically I got my snowboard and I don't really know what to do with it now. I plan on going up to Tahoe in two weeks or so but I still have my board in the plastic wrap. I didn't want to take it out as I still am unsure what to do. I've heard I need to wax it a couple times before going up and maybe tune it. Since this is my first board, I was thinking of bringing it to a shop to get a new board tune and wax. Then I would wax it myself after. Recommendations? What should I do now?
Just gone up to Tahoe last week and I got a perfect day! Little powder and it is just prefect!
About your new board, I don't you need to wax them till after 4-5 run or simply go to Any Mountain and get it wax for only $10. I got mine done in a few hours and they did a great job because my friend did my board once and it looks uneven. I wouldn't wax it myself especially the first time. Hope this help and happy snowboarding!
Yeah I think I'll go to any mountain to wax my board as I don't want to mess it up the first time. But when do I need to wax? Right aftte I take it out of the plastic or just before I'm gonna take it up. Should I also spring for the new board tune while I'm there? It consist of: Binding mount, iron-on wax, de-tune tips & tails, binding adjust and test for $35?
I just got my fist board last week. I slaped my bindings on, adjusted them up. And then waxed my board. There is an instructional video that Snowolf made that really helped me out. Waxing your own board is cake.

lol.. when reading the title of this thread, im thinking to myself...um, you got a new board now RIDE!!!!!!!
Not exactly surgery.
They come pre waxed. Just set up your bindings (again, not exactly surgery....) set them to your prefered stance, and go for a rip!
