Is it still on the factory wax? If so then definetly do, it doesn't hold up that long at all especially on the man made snow you'd find on the east coast. Look at the edges of the base, if they look dryer than the middle i'd say it needs a wax, even if it doesn't look dry it couldn't hurt. Take care of your board and it will take care of you

If your base and edges look dry/white its time for a wax.

You can use a piece of wax paper over an old iron or go to walmart and buy an iron for $10 bucks.

I just hotwaxed my forum board this past Sunday for the first time myself and 1. It is easy as hell to do 2. It will make u and you're board closer due to quality time 3. My homies Capita stairmaster was kicking my boards ass all season in the speed department and the look on my homies face as he realized he wasn't able to smoke me down the mountain anymore was priceless

Do it yourself, it will pay off in the end and you know exactly what is being done. At some shops (none in particular), they do not spend as much time on your board as they should because they have so much to do....spend the $100 or so bucks to get a nice setup (iron, scraper, brass bristle brush, and edge tuning stone-DaKine ultimate tune + the brush $100 give or take), and not only can you do your board but you can do your friends for $5 bucks or free, whatever floats your boat. It will make you closer to your board.

For $10 bucks they will prolly just roll on the wax, it will last as long as it took to apply.

$10 bucks sounds right for just edges though.
