Default Sharp, dull...tuning, detuning???

So this will be my first season with my new stairmaster and I want to know what needs to be done tuning wise. I know there's some stickys about this but I just want some real input for my situaion. So I ride the east coast bulls*** ice and all, but I want to know what needs to be done to my board right out of the packageing beside a good waxing.

I mainly am looking for a good park board but still have enough edge to take it down some groomers every so often. I don't have the money to have seperate boards for this, so what do I need my local shop to do for me? All help is appreciated, thanks

detune ur tip and tail..from contact points over the tail/nose..and if ur riding park, bevel ur edges..i recommend 2/2 base/side..but if ur riding a lot of ice u can do 2/3 base/side or 1/2 its up to you play a little with angles and ull find which u like most. Get a file guide from hardware/snowboard shop and u can be fine.
