Default What to do with my edges...

As of now my new park board is untouched since I bought it as far as tuning/detuning. I've used it 5 times so far and I think I'm in need of a base edge bevel, a full detune to dull them down, or both. I'm not great at the park, so I usually just 50-50 rails and boxes, but the past couple times I've been getting into boardsliding boxes so I feel like I need to get a good detune.

I have a Burton Twin which I heard comes without a base edge bevel, so I'm guessing this will become a problem as I start doing more boardslides. I plan on taking my board to a local shop to have my edges worked on. I live in a dorm so I don't wax or plan on tuning my own edges in my room, since I don't have a work bench or anything to work on. My question is, what should I tell the guy at the shop? Detune and a base edge bevel? And how many degrees would you guys suggest?

Thanks in advance!
