Considering it's a twin board, I'd assume you'll want to ride switch. 15/-15 duck stance is excellent for that.
As for waxing, some say do wax it and some say don't. I say do it because factory wax is (generally) made to keep the board looking fresh in the shop and not to ride down the mountain.
A buddy of mine took his new custom out for 7 trips before waxing it while my wax came off after 2 runs. Your call.
Waxing is 15$ at the resort and 50 cents if you do it yourself.

|bluddah||i believe the rental places here on the mountains do front foot 15 and rear foot at 0 or -3 degrees if you dont tell them what degree you want.. so you might want to start with that and go from there. i usually put 15 and -3 for beginner friends that dont know what degree they want and it ends up fine.|

|SB SCRUB||ok thanks.|

Front foot 15 degrees
rear foot -6 degrees
try this first and make adjustments as necessary. You will find setup that works for you.

It shouldn't need to be waxed beforehand, but definitely after a few days of use.
The bindings should be set up for your comfort and riding style. Nobody can give you a straight answer on that, only recommendations.
