Question about tuning edges.

Hey guys, I have the demon wax kit and just bought a 2013 k2 happy hour. Although the board is still new in plastic, I was wondering once my edges get dull what should I do.

The problem is the k2 has a -1 degree edge but my edger only has option for 90 degrees or 88 degrees.

Should I try to change the edge to 90 degrees or buy another edge tool from different company to do the edges on my board?

Take a look a the SkiVisions edge tuning tool. There's plenty of options, but this tool is easy to use and does a good job.

unless you need to change angles.... use a finer grit DMT.

if you want to get angle specific base & sidewall file guides, that's up to you.

if you want to get multi-edge ones, that's up to you.

Here's what I have:

Question about tuning edges.

You're over thinking it. If you ride rails. 88 if you don't 90. Or be lazy like I am because I don't see the difference and don't do them at all. Just snowboard.

when i pulled my board out of the plastic i grabbed a file and ran it over the edges at a 45 degree angle for a couple of passes. unless you plan on getting alot of ice shredding time who needs sharp edges?
