newb maintenance ?

So, finally got my first day out with my new setup and it turned out to be a pretty icy day. My board has some very fine scratches I can feel on the bottom. Is there any way to polish these out? Like green scotch pads? Also, the board is a CX 2500 base, how often should I wax it if I'm mainly riding ice/slush/man made garbage?

Also, another random question about my board. I picked up a GNU Carbon Credit at the end of last season and noticed when I got back from the trip that there is a hump running tip to tail about where the back of my rear binding sits. Is this normal?

Thanks in advance.

If it looks dry, wax it. Probably just edge-burn, meaning edges are dry, like I said, wax it. Fine scratches? Bases are 'structured' meaning they have tiny grooves. Makes em faster.

The GNU? Photos to show what you are talking about would help (good, clear ones too)

Thanks, nice tutorials on YouTube btw. But, the scratches are all very, very small. Can't are them, just feel them. I noticed in your waxing videos you took the time to brush your board to polish it and I was just wanting to keep the base as nice as possible.

As far as the bump though I cannot take a picture of it because you cannot see it. Only feel it. If you've ever done bodywork its the same feeling. Very gradual rise and fall. If I had to guess I would say the hump is about 1 inch by 4 inches.
