Waxing a new board to be slower?

I got a new board but its pretty icy out and I want to get a feel for the board before I make it super slick. Its over a year old (but new, just a 2007 model) and lookin a little dry / white on the bottom so I need to wax it for sure before I take it out.

To make it not so slick would I just wax, scrape and not brush it at all? Should I go easy on the scraping?

Trust me you dont want to try boarding with a bad wax...

I had my board last year start to get dry(i was a noob and didnt really understand what to look for)..i literally couldnt even get my board off the newbie lift...it just stuck to the ground..i could barely even skate it was pretty horrible Had to take it into their shop and get it waxed...
