Sick-Pow They don't hot wax per say , they use a roll on machine which also scrapes the wax at the same time, and a very thin coat, you most likely would not be able to scrape much off with your nail.

Most big brands have good wax, just not the best wax job.

CheeseForSteeze Wax it. That said, an extruded base on the 'scope isn't going to gain that much speed.

zbomb I always put a fresh coat of bluebird on any board out of the bag....

I know that mervin factory waxes with OBJ.... But they never seemed as fast out of the gate as a board I waxed myself with my preferred wax.

eek5 There is factory wax but it will dry out after a couple of runs. Wax it before you ride it.

Do new boards come pre-waxed?

The online board shop i bought my last board from said that it will have a coat of wax on it from the factory but it sure didnt feel like there was any wax on it when i got it. I just got my new Horrorscope FK and it doesnt feel like it either. Anybody know?

Just wondering if i should get it waxed before i ride this weekend.
