I took the board to the shop today, got it waxed and the guy filed part of it down for me. He said it would be best to start off my detuning the tip and tail contact points which is what he did, then he sold me what he called a "stone" to dull the rest down and smooth out and nicks and jagged parts in the edge. He didn't touch part of the edge between my feet.

The main reason I wanted it detuned was to boardslide rails and boxes without catching an edge, so I feel like I would need to detune the edge between my feet as well. Does this sound right? Also, will my board be slipping all over the place or will it be hard to turn with such dull contact points?

Sorry for being such a noob when it comes to detuning, but out of my 8 years of snowboarding, 7 have been spent on a 168cm groomer zoomer that I keep sharp edges all the time. This is my first park board so I'm a little clueless
