Do I need to wax or tune my new skis/snowboard?Updated a year ago

All High Society products come out of the factory waxed up and tuned, ready to shred. However, we do recommend a deep hot wax application by a professional tune shop either before your first run, or after your first day. It'll keep your base in great condition and keep you sliding with ease. 

For skis, we recommend DE-TUNING, or dulling the early rise portion of your ski edge with a green fibertex cloth or a gummy stone. No need for a file on this. Also we recommmend a light detune of the tip and tail edges, starting from where the effective edge contacts point out to the very tip and tail. You dont need to detune the effective edges.
