Ten hand flexes, then mount your bindings and then carpet board for an hour alternating between nose and tail presses. Then put it in the corner and give it creepy looks from across the room.

After that you are ready to go

You can wax it if you want but GNU's factory wax is usually fine for the first couple of days. Just strap in and ride.

And don't forget to lick all along the edges!

Not to be a dick, but I hate terrible grammar.

While you're waiting for snow, hit a dictionary.

Break =/= brake
