You won't need to clean a new board.

Just get any surface grime off with a wet cloth.

when you are buying a new board you are probably spending $250+. you can usually get the shop to put a fresh coat of wax on for free

new boards come pre-waxed. unless you need really cold weather or warm weather wax on it you don't need to wax it. Like LI said, just wipe it off with a cloth to get off the dust

yes new boards may come prewaxed but you bring me an avid and experienced boarder that would choose a factory new board wax over a pro shop custom wax job
