WAX IT!! It puts you at one with your board. It's a bonding experience!
haha this! I pop in the head phones and wax the board with as much enthusiasm as i have when actually riding it!
I suppose you could use a metal scraper if you were good enough, but more than once i have been going at it and caught the edge of the scraper and increased the angle so much it jammed into the board and took of a good bit of the wax i just put down, i wouldnt want to risk that sort of damage with a metal scraper.
also op's OG question, no, you can't wax it too much and have adverse effects, but you can wax it too much and waste wax. Do you need to wax it 2 months before you ride it...no. but if you are that anxious to get the snow season started and you want to occupy your time with snowboard related activities, go for it. But more than likely you will wax it now, then two months down the road you will end up waxing it again just to be sure, so you are just wasting wax at that point.
If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

no i dont... but i was told by the store that i should put a layer of wax on it to protect it from drying out or something ? cant really remember what he said...
i will learn how to wax myself eventually......
I'm a total noob!! But here's what I learned in my first season...
Wax is your friend...
You cannot overwax. Maybe you do it more than you NEED to, but it's not going to hurt anything.
Waxing is EASY. Either that or I'm doing it wrong. LOL. And it's fun and relaxing. A little challenging with you're traveling. Not everywhere has places where you can do it yourself. I might have broke the rules and snuck it up to my hotel room a couple of times.
I typically wax before every outting when possible.
And I was told to do a storage wax for the summer, but that was cause it had been used over the season. I'm willing to bet that anothe month or two before you hit a hill with your new board isn't going to make a difference. People on here told me my factory wax would get me through my first few times out, and they were right.
