Default Scraping off the wax

Noob question here....

So I took my board in at the end of the season and had it waxed. They left the wax on the board. can I just scrape it off or does the board need to be warmed first?

no need to heat. scrape it off but make sure you scape in the direction where the scraper makes an acute angle with the board. as depicted here / =>. if you do it the other way you gouge the wax and it will be too thin. I would also suggest roughing it up with a brush of some sort, preferably a light brass, iron wool works well too but dont apply pressure
