Brass brush question(with pics)

Hi guys. Being new to snowboarding I'm trying to learn snowboard maintenance. I've just picked some brass brush from local Home Depot. Tried to brush my brand new Head Tribute Board to get it ready for waxing(was following Snowolf video lessons). Well, it's not like brush leaves scratches, but brushed surface is definitely harsher than new surface.

Here is the brush:


Brushed surface:


New surface:


after reviewing the pictures there is no difference between new and brushed surface, but brushed one is less shiny under normal light conditions(pictures taken with strong flash)

My question is: is this suppose to be like this? Or am I doing it too harsh and all I really need is just light-touch brushing? Thanks.

P.S. if posting relatively big pictures is against the forum rules, please forgive me and delete post.

Thats a point of brushing, you're taking all the crap out. which makes it less shiny
waxing will make it shiny

Yeah, I'm just concerned if I'm not damaging the base and doing everything all right

I personally dont use a brush, I find that a scotch bright pad is adequate enough...but then again I'm not really particular about my base since I'm jumping on rails and such all the time.

i dont really think you need to brush your board at the beginning when it is brand new, Because purpose of it is just to take all crap out, like dust and staff. but i dont know, i am not an expert.
I used brush only to structure the base

o ya and i got question about structuring with brush. When im brushing and small pieces of wax coming off, does it mean i didnt scrap enough? or is it normal? because later i got rid of these pieces

I thought it is better to use nylon brush for structuring.

I use a brush when I finish waxing. lightly and spray it with water, it max the wax coat super thin, which helps with speed a little more
