Why do so many people always say to detune the edges on a brand new board? I keep my edges super sharp and can't imagine riding with a detuned edge. I tried a 1* base bevel on my board this season and didn't like the lack of response, especially on good snow.

Unless of course everyone who gives this advice is assuming that the rider hits the park a lot.
