Default All about Base Grinds

Can someone explain what the difference between a base grind, a stone grind, and a belt tune is?

When would you get either of those done, and do you do it every season?

From what I read on this forum, a base grind takes away material from the base(can be limited), can add structure to the base, correct radical base bevels. I think some of these may refer to one or more of those kind of grinds or tune.

Here's the thread I'm pick up bits from, http://www.snowboardingforum.com/gen...questions.html .

a base grind is the only one i am familiar with...it takes off about 1/4 of the base pretty much re basing it unless you have deep gashes..

They're all about the same, don't sweat it.

base grind for making a base flat
stone grind for structuring
belt sand if you're stupid

What does Kirkwood mean when he does it 5 times a year. Isn't stone grinding 2 times a year bit much? taking off a lot of the base material; or would someone that stone grinds 2x a year be more likely changing a snowboard every 2 years or so?

Basegrind would take off base material too, right?
