Across your effective edge. This is where the board makes contact with the snow. The only places where you would want to have a different edge are possibly the contact points. At the contact points you can round off the edge conservatively to avoid 'catching an edge' in unforgiving conditions.

But if you are going to apply bevelled edges to your board, you should apply them along the entire effective edge.

I am trying to get into contact with Forum to see what kind of bevel the Destroyer comes with from the factory. If it already comes with a 2 degree base/88 degree side bevel (and it might) you should be good to go. If it comes with a 1 degree base/89 degree side bevel, then I would take it to a shop and get them to give you a 2 degree base bevel.

From that, you can choose your side bevel... If your edge angles add up to 90(ie. 2 degree base + 88 degree side = 90), thats ideal. But if you want more forgiveness (ie. duller), 91 or even 92 would be better. Angles adding up to less than 90 is more for freeriding and alpine.
