Hey guys I will be getting a board shipped in next week, just wondering if it comes preloaded or if i need to wax it.
It's a K2 Raygun

They do come with wax, but it's usually a pretty shit coat that wears off quick. It'll last a day or so but then its time to put a proper wax on. I usually wax every board I get.

Factory wax protects the base for the sales floor so it doesn't look dry and ashy. It doesn't hold up well on the hill. You may get a day or two riding out of the wax. Personally I always wax my own boards every 3-4 days riding and brand new boards get waxed it before going out the first day.

That's what I was told, so I've always had my new boards waxed.

You can ride it a day or two on factory wax. But putting on a new layer of proper wax always produces a better result.

I myself rode on factory wax just fine. I would have waxed it though if I knew it'd be better.
