Exclamation K2 www /// Detune?

Sup guys,,
finally got myself my second board the k2 www. Now I am faced with the question of do I need to detune it for park sessions?
I have heard of snowboards being rail ready being already detuned,, and being new to maintenance (ie. waxing and edge tuning/detuning) have no idea if work is needed

thanks in advance.

K2 ships there boards from the factory already detuned and ready to ride, so need need to detune. You should give it a wax though.

k2 www good match up bindings?

Eyy sorry for changing the topic.. i figure its better to ask here than to start another thread..
anyways,,
I need a lightweight binding mainly for jibs and medium sized kickers? I'm new to jibbing however still love throwing rotations off the kickers..
so any advice on what I would need for my perfect binding? I was thinking of going with a Union Contact or the Rome 390's..
really lost and want to make sure i get it right binding as light as it can be for what I want..

Hmmm I never thought my k2 www was detuned when I got it. The edges felt very sharp so I detuned the nose and tail a ton, in between the bindings some, and just a tad of the contact points to keep it from being to grabby. I also have Rome 390s on mine. They're really comfortable and have a nice flex and lots of adjustments. My only gripe about them would be the weight.

Ohh true true,, maybe I should just round off the edges to make sure?
learning jibbing I know off the bat that i'm going to take tons of falls soo making sure that edges arnt catching on a box or rail is important for myself,, I should probably go with detuning it somewhat?
ill post a pic soon times off the board once my camera battery charger is found

EDIT: picture wont do good nvm,, and it will take way to long to get the camera issue sorted out..
I can already feel that the edges are too sharp..
soo when i go to detune I want to take a bunch off the nose and tail right?!
and once thats done only a little between the bindings?
Thanks for helping me out,, I dont want to make this board go to ruin

Well the nose and tail area you dont use for turning at all, so you can detune that a lot. In between the bindings is used for turning, but not primarily and since I ride pipe sometimes too I opted not to do that as much as the tip and tail. You could do the middle a lot if you wanted to. The contact points I just gave a few passes with the stone to take just a little bit of the bite away.

The WWW comes witha 3* base bevel, so it should be detuned right from the factory.
