Default Question on Bevelling

Hey guys, I've only snowboarded a couple times and really enjoyed it so decided to buy some equipment while the discounts are here. I bought a 2011 GNU Carbon Credit 156. The board comes with a 0 base and 90 side. I've read some threads on beveling and I see that GNU has a special tool for side beveling their magnetraction boards here. From my understanding, this tool will bevel the side in either 88 or 90.

I am curious as a beginner who eventually wants to be able to do rails (but probably not for another season or two), if you were me, which recommendation from Snowolf's thread here would you use?

1 base and use the 90 degree side for a 91 degree angle or a 2 base and a 88 degree side? What I'm thinking of is do a 1 base and 90 side and when I'm ready to try mix in rails, change it to a 2 base and 88 side.

Any input/feedback would be much appreciated.
