Do new boards come pre-waxed?

The online board shop i bought my last board from said that it will have a coat of wax on it from the factory but it sure didnt feel like there was any wax on it when i got it. I just got my new Horrorscope FK and it doesnt feel like it either. Anybody know?

Just wondering if i should get it waxed before i ride this weekend.

There is factory wax but it will dry out after a couple of runs. Wax it before you ride it.

I always put a fresh coat of bluebird on any board out of the bag....

I know that mervin factory waxes with OBJ.... But they never seemed as fast out of the gate as a board I waxed myself with my preferred wax.

Wax it. That said, an extruded base on the 'scope isn't going to gain that much speed.

They don't hot wax per say , they use a roll on machine which also scrapes the wax at the same time, and a very thin coat, you most likely would not be able to scrape much off with your nail.

Most big brands have good wax, just not the best wax job.
