Ok I read about and watched some videos on detuning and I just wanna make sure I got it straight before I hit my board.
1. Using a file, (household metal file will do fine right?) completely dull the nose and tail edges from one contact point to the other.
2. Dull 1-2 inches of the effective edge starting at each contact point.
3. Use sandpaper (I don't have a stone) to smooth out your work.
4. Be very careful because it's difficult to get your edge sharp again (maybe you can get it done at a shop?).
Edit: I don't do many rails but I do hit some easy ones occasionally. I've read that detuning is done a lot for park riders, but the above steps will be fine for a freerider as well correct?
