This question has been thoroughly asked and answered here already- u can search and find more detailed responses- but in one word: yes.

Oh, missed the "when" I'm ur post- but yes, u should redo the factory rub on wax.

buy the equipment to hot wax, then do it every couple days up.

things you need-
Iron-can be bought from walmart for cheap
Scraper
Brick-o-wax-prefferably an all temp snowboard wax
a stif bristle brush-i have a brass bristled brush

look up "how to wax snowboard" on youtube.

Certain conditions vary the perfect interim to wax, but you should do it right away and then as frequently as every time out to every 4 or 5 times out. Maintaining your own edges and base is a fun hobby and easier and cheaper than taking to the shop for tuning.

Also, at the end of the season, wax your board and then leave it on. Don't scrape it off until next year. The wax stays in the pores and helps keep your base in better condition by keeping it from drying out.
