Not really. Maybe ride it lightly once or twice, after that it's obviously used. You don't buy a board to put it in a glass cabinet and rub it with a diaper. You buy it to ride it hard and put it away wet. A little use is no big deal.
A big mistake first time brand new board owners make is to assume they can keep the board pristine and scratch free. You might as well swing your fists at the ocean to keep the tide from coming in for all the good it'll do. Damage happens, it's part and parcel with the deal.
