Exclamation Should I sharpen my edges or no?

My edges are sorta getting dull now. Havent had them sharpened in a while.
Im an east coast rider so I sorta need edges but now that the season is coming to an end in like 3 weeks should I just not sharpen them?
And I'm going to Windells this summer that is all park so yeah.

But if you never sharpen the edges, and your from the east coast where it icy half the time and you still ride park, what should you do?

Increase your base bevel edge to 3 degrees and have a corresponding 88 or 87 degree side bevel. This will keep you from catching an edge on rails, while giving you some bite on ice, you will just have to get higher up on an edge to engage it. Or switch to a MTX board where you can have somewhat dull edges and still have decent ice hold
