Edge Maintenance

So I just got my first snowboard, and have been reading into the maintenance I need to do to keep it in top shape.

I know what I'm doing in terms of waxing, but a bit confused about the edges, especially as my board has Grip Tech (Arbor Westmark) :s

I was going to use this:
Silverline 103526 320 Grit Pocket Diamond Sharpening Stone: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools
to deburr the edges at the end of each day, and this:
Demon Edge Tuner Multi Snow Tool - White: Amazon.co.uk: Sports & Outdoors
to sharpen them every 3-4 days.

Is that a good plan, or do I need to do anything else?

I am also aware I need to detune the edges at the contact points, but how does this work with Grip Tech? Do I have to detune the extra contact points as well?

Thanks for any help
