Make sure you can 50/50 rails would be a good starting point. I have also been practicing my body form and rotations needed on a balance beam. This I'm hoping is building balance and some muscle memory for when I hit the real feature.

I ride a skate banana, I de-tuned my edges 2 degrees. I'm not that experienced a rider so some the of veterans can chime in on this. I haven't caught an edge.
I'm also guessing that if you haven't tuned up your board all the riding you've been doing will have dulled your edges but still worth looking into to make sure
