Default New board arrives tomorrow!

I ordered a K2 raygun on cyber Monday and she'll be here first thing tomorrow. I'm planning on getting up to Breck for a half day on Sunday. Do I need to wax her first? This is my first new board, so suggestions on how to prep before I ride it would be great. Thanks!

Everybody will differ on their opinion probably, but they tend to come from the factory waxed, so I'd say just ride it.

Actually you need to hot box wax it several times to really get the wax down into the pores...

Naw, just do what trapper said! Too many people overthink wax. None of us are top level racers here...
