OK, Next NOOB Question: Edges
OK, so I think I'm pretty happy with my starting binding setup at +18, -3 and 20". Now I need some info on edges. I've read alot of conflicting info on detuning and various edge bevels and am pretty confused. Is detuning only for park riders or is it helpful for freeride as well. According to Rome, my Solution 158 has what they call thier mountain bevel -1, -1 degrees and they also say that Rome boards are surrounded in a protective perimeter of steel for damage control from unintended collisions with hard objects and Tips and tails are de-tuned So my question is should I leave my edges alone or should I have them detuned at a local shop? I really don't want to spend all day catching edges and doing face plants on my new board and since I have no idea if last years rental was detuned or not, I'm at a loss. I'm gonna hot wax my board myself, because from the info and videos I've seen online, that seems almost idiot proof, but for some reason I just can't wrap my brain around the whole edge tuning/detuning thing. Thanks again for all the help you guys have given me so far, it's all really gonna help me improve my riding alot quicker this season.
