Smile New Snowboard ( 156 Agenda, Ride )

Hi guys. I've been riding for about nine years or so ( can't remember for sure ) and I just bit the bullet and bought myself a snowboard ( yay for not renting )

I got a 156cm RIDE Agenda board. I got it when we were heading HOME >_< I had work that monday so we were in a hurry / the guy didn't put the bindings on or wax it for me (he offered but we got home at 4am as it was...)

Oh and i know that my bindings are on backwards(switched around lol) I was spaceyyyyy when i put the stuff on/ sleeeeepy

Anyway. my main question is:

I want to wax it /do the edge thing? and stuff before i go snowboarding Feb. 13th -16th at Redlodge, MT.

I've been looking at these two pages and then a bunch of videos on youtube, etc etc etc. to try to decide what to buy
Snowboard Tune Guide
Snowboard Tuning Tools

I found this kit but I'm not sure if it's worth the money. DAKINE Super Tune Tuning Kit - USA from Backcountry.com

Here's screens of what I'm trying to decide on buying:






Here's the pricing for what the lodge charges for tune ups, etc.... Red Lodge Mountain Resort Montana Skiing, Snowboarding, Golfing

I saw this on ebay: NEW INNOVATIVE WAX SCRAPER; SKI,SNOWBOARD, & SURF TOOL - eBay (item 250364869803 end time Feb-04-09 17:35:33 PST) It looks like a good idea, just thought I'd ask what you guys thought before i bought or not.

Dakine Super Tune tuning kit - find a deal, MSRP is $80, completely worth it

Cleaner: Simple Green or similar.

Wax: Any cheap all-temp wax will do.

that's really all you need, unless you want to get into brushes

What all is in that kit that I'd need..? Just wondering. I don't really know what to do about my edges. I don't want to dull them much, just want the board to be easy to ride/ but carves decent/good on ice.

Wax= How much should I get...? I put the One Ball Jay 4wd Pucks -warm in my cart because this site: Snowboard Tuning Tools

said that it was good for the first wax of a new board....? Any reason why?

... >_< Sorry if I sound dumb.

Do I need all that stuff in that kit? Or should I buy some of the stuff separate if I don't need all that stuff...?

you need the iron for ironing, the edge tool for maintaining your edges, the file brush for file cleaning, the plastic scraper for scraping, the pocket stone for polishing, and the case for holding it all nicely

you don't NEED the big file, metal scraper, p-tex, little wax block, scrubby pad, and tuning tip

Iron I can get for 35.
Edge tool...? ( suggestions on what to get ? )
File brush? Isn't it just a brass brush?/ I have one for cleaning guns.
Plastic scraper=8-10 bucks
pocket stone= ? can i buy one separate..?
wax=would like to try a couple different kinds.

the edge tool can be found at any ski or snowboard shop; ideally it should have 2 sides (with differing angles i.e. 90 and 88), and the file should also have 2 sides (single (\\) and double (XX) cut)

the file brush is a simple small brass or other soft metal wire brush

scrapers are pretty much self-explanatory

the pocket stone is a fine-grit ceramic stone (you should be able to find one at a hardware store)

wax is also pretty much self-explanatory

The file thing that is included is this:

"Two-sided file configuration can be changed for flat filing or side filing; 0- or 2-degree bevels"

Is that all I'll need to detune my edges/ make a slight edge/
