I detune the tip and tail, well, because I can.
Do you deburr your edges with a diamond stone at the end of every day? That is going to make 10 times more of a difference. That's the difference between doing stuff that actually matters... and doing stuff because you think that's what the hardcore riders do.

I forgot I had this... but I did a 1-hour rail session with my board like this doing boardslides, lipslides, nosepresses and tailpresses, etc ... 0/0 bevel, no detuning.... and a busted edge. If I can't catch my edge riding a board like that (and I am by no means a great jibber)... do you really think detuning your nose or tail is going to matter much?

Edit: I should add that in general I prefer 1/1... but I only bothered to do that when the edges needed to be sharpened anyway.
