Default My board isn't waxed, should it be?

I got a burton dragon really cheap used of someone as my first board. I am pretty sure it isn't waxed. Does it need to be? What does waxing the board do?

Somewhere in here is a thread that really states the whole proceedure but it isnt rocket science. The real trick is to constantly be moving the hot iron over the board so you dont burn the base. Again check the info thread in the forum.
Thanks. I'll check that out.
