What board is it?

Some companies put an actual real wax treatment on it while others just use a spray-on wax designed to make the board look good in the shop and will wear off after 2 runs.

detune your tip and tail corner edges to prevent hangups carving groomed runs..
the factories spit these things out sharp all the way around and there is no need for your tip and tail to be sharp.. IMO
