Minger I'd say it should be fine for the summer, but I would wax it at th e beginning of the season if you don't do it now. However, wax it if the base is all dry - the Gnu RC I just bought was dry as hell and it hadn't been used yet (There were white lines all down the base from dryness).

I don't know what type of wax for Tahoe though.

chad812 I just bought a new rome crail, which says it is pre-waxed. I will not go snowboarding until December in Tahoe. Should I wax it for the summer being that it has never been ridden? Also, what kind of wax should I use for my trip to Tahoe in December?

try waxing it and you'll immediately notice that you can really fly. i wax my board after like 5 sessions and can notice a big difference. do it yourself too, its kinda fun, it's cheaper than at a shop, and you can do a better job than the people at the shop.

Minger I have all three of my boards (well, one is my brother's...) in a bag, and they're leaning on each other. I can't possibly imagine it losing its camber from an extra 10-15 pounds on it, especially when they support well...people.

No men that thing is really tight, lol. It's like if you open the bag it explodes . Plus I just realized I had the other bag on top of it for the whole summer .

Oh well...

In reply to snowolf - I think I'll just store it with the bindings off since I remove them to wax anyway. Good tip though.

sparty In the April issue of TWS they had a write up on how to store your board. In addition to a heavy dose of warm weather wax, they recommend storing it in a cool, dry place with nothing stacked on top of it, as it could flatten your board's camber.
