What you might wanna do is get a file at the end of the file wrap scotch tape 4to5 times around it.lay your board flat(base facing you)gide the file grom tip to tail(with the side of the file with the tape on it od the base)this will create a small bevel as you glide the file.Than use your stone to smooth out what you just filed.Remember not to go crazy with the file just a couple of passes(use a sharpie and color the edge in)as you pass the file you'll see the ink disapear which will help in knowing how much you've filed off.Doing this will bevel some without killing you edges.You can also you glide the board across the box or rail to test it before you acually hit it.bring the stone to the park just incase you gotta do adjustments.Note this is what i did and it seems to work.But dont round of you edges especially if you live in the eastcoast since we dont get powder,cause turning will be a bitch.
