Yes wax it, they only wax it enough to keep it safe while in warehouses waiting to be bought.

And...im not really sure what to tell you about learning to use a screwdriver...? Cant really teach you that if you havent figured it out already :)

Ummm.... Yes...

Whenever I put a normal binding plate on I first line it up at the desired angle with the plate already in the binding, then put all the screws in their holes, lift it up so it all stays in place, then make it hover over the board so that the screws are just barely touching. That way it all hold itself in place while u get the first screw down. Just keep practicing. I can put bindings on in about a minute per binding. Just practice, it's not worth the time or money of taking it to a shop.

Did you happen to get Burton bindings? Cause I know those are a lil different.

And do you have trouble lining up the disk holes with the ones on your board? Or you can't even figure out how to get the disk on the rest of the binding? Pics would probably be helpful if you think you have atypical bindings.

You'll be fine with the factory wax. I usually ride a new board for a few days before waxing it. Factory wax is the best wax you can get!

Your not going skiing, you're going riding, or to shred.

Making me want to gouge my eyes with this skiing shit haha

Theres a ton of threads asking about waxing new sticks btw.

Just wax it if you have time, but no worries if you don't.
