any of you East Coast types, that ride the whole mountain, detune your effective edge?
i was watching those videos again and in the last one, the guy said that maybe you leave the factory tune, for the effective edge, as it is - if you mostly ride the ice and hardpack like me

i would think to detune the edges too so you don't catch on the rails.

oooooooooooooohhhhhhhhh. i thought it was some sort of dig against NYorkers. 

" yea to bad you guys are in sac town." which came right after Nu-Nu's post about the $75 tune. hence the misunderstanding.

3. how often do you need a base grind? is it only if you can't fix the scratches with P Tex?

its best to detune a little bit right out of the bag cuz the edges r extremely sharp.  depending on how u ride it how much u detune.  for instance on my park boards i completely round my edges so that they dont catch on rails or boxes.  if ur just gonna be riding groomers or pow its best to only detune slightly.

do not tune your edges on a brand new board. out of the factory your edges are as sharp and clean as they will ever be. in fact, you may want to de-tune or dull part of your edge on a brand new board. park riders like to do this so the board slides smoothly on handrails.

that's not a bad video, but one thing to caution is how much you should file off... as some ppl detune, they sometimes sharpie their edges so they know how much to detune (when the black marker on the edge goes away).

Yeah, be careful on your edges. They are not difficult if you know what you are doing; however, they can be permantely damaged if you do them incorrectly. I think a video on this will be very good.
 
Also keep in mind that tuning an edge can entail many different things. For instance, it could mean deburring or detuning a edge. This is very easy and not very sophisticated. In fact, a lot of seasoned riders will carry a gummy stone or something in their pocket to quickly remove burrs from rocks and rails. However, setting a new edge bevel is very intimidating. Even I, after many years, will take my race boards to a very trusted shop tech to have this done.

The season is creeping up. Don't get caught on the hill the first day unpreparedCry...Make sure your board is waxed, your edges are sharpened or detuned, your stance is optimized and your gear is pimpin. We just added Dakine Tools and Tuning Accessories on the site. Customize your stance on the hill with a pocket size tool. Wax your board in your garage. Lets kick this season of correct!!!!
