The base itself if rolled a total of .25 inc. The edge might be beveled, but since its a jibstick, and I asume that is its main purpose for you, just detune it. Even a 3 degree bevel doesnt do much compared to a file detune.

This particular board felt good with the factory specs so I just wanted to sharpen the edges maintaining the factory bevels, if any. Nitro's website is not very helpful.

Nitro themselves are not very helpful!
