Just a noob question here. Wondering if brand new boards have to be waxed. I tried scouring the internet and I got a bunch of different responses. I've heard that brand new boards come pre waxed but other people say that its only a wax for storage purposes and not meant for actual runs. Just wondering. I picked up a "new" 07 rome agent, not sure if the make of the board makes a difference.
Boards come tuned and waxed off the retail rack. Factory wax jobs last roughly four to six days of riding. Bear in mind that there are different waxes for the cold, crisp snows of winter and the wetter slop of spring. If you don't know how to wax a board, there are some good how-to clips on youtube.

My question regarding waxing is if it's best to try and do it yourself or just go to a local shop and have them do it. I just got my first board after riding rentals and my friends old board for a couple of years now and I wanna make sure I maintain it well. This year I'm going boarding at least 3 times, and next year I start college so hopefully I'll be going more often then. I've never had to maintain a board before so I'm hoping it's not too difficult.
