Personally, I wouldn't. However, many will tell you to just detune the tip and tail. You can do that if you want, but again, I wouldn't. Really though, it's all personal preference. The only thing a detune is going to do is make it slightly less likely to catch an edge. Since you deem yourself an intermediate rider, you should be know pretty well how to mostly avoid catching an edge. Riding the board will detune it for you as well, so after a few good days, you should be fine anyways. But again, it's all personal preference.

EDIT: None of the replies above me were there when I wrote this reply. Well played laggy internet. Well played.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!
