New Rossignol Board Help

From what I've been reading on this site I'm now thinking my first time out on a new board I'll be catching edges and busting a$$. I recently got a 08 Rosi Scope and wanted to know if anyone has experience with this board or with rosi boards in general. Do they come detuned? Should I get the edges adjusted for a new beginner rider? Thanks.

Dunno how much it helps, but last season I was riding an 07/08 rossi RPM and tbh it was a great board. The edges were fine from the factory, I detuned them for some park riding, but for all mountain it worked pretty flawless. Even for a beginner coming off an LTR burton (rental) it was similar and easy to pick up without catching edges left and right. Hope it helps!

Unless you are hitting the park on your first day, you don't want to detune the edges. You can detune the tips if you want, but I don't think you need to worry about that right away.

You may want to go over the just to remove any possible burrs from the factory cut.

Aside from that, buy some body protection if you are really worried about getting hurt.

I've ridden rossignols for years when i first started and they are fine from when u buy them. The edges are really no sharper than any other board, it's all in your technique that determines if u'll catch an edge.
