Just wax the thing and go ride it. The board will naturally detune itself once you start using it.

That's what she said!

Okay I'm sorry. Enough with the immature jokes for one day...


ANYWHO!
Just give it a good waxing. Some people will say give it two, but eh. I only give it one and it's fine. Have a great season!

It comes with a factory wax on the base and 1 degree edges. You want to definitly wax it and get 2 degree edges next time you get it tuned up. You might want to think about gettng a stonegrind also so you have a pattern in your base. As far as detuning don't worry about it. it just refers to dulling the edges with a fine file but you should only do that at the tip and tail just before where it starts to bend up. The best place for a tune and grind i think is sports authority because the have 48 hour turn around and $75K dollar machines.

haha you guys really have now idea. The people who actaully tune the boards i'm not talking sales people, are certified BY winterstager every year, mand most probably know more about tuning than 90% of all boarders. Go get it done once, you'll go back.

I got it done once.
The week after I had a brand new board because they fucked mine up so bad.

I'm NEVER going to sports authority again.

lol i guess it's my shop. Never had any issue at all, and all the guys there know a ton about boarding. If they f'd up you board you should have had them buy you a new one because they would have had to. What exactly did they do that messed it up so bad you ha dto get a new deck completly. It's almost impossible to do because the only thing that they do by hand is the waxing.
