de-tuning a 09/10 evo-r

hey guys how are things?

i have read through alot of threads on here about rocker/camber boards and bevelling, but i am keen to know-

i have just got a ns evo-r 161, and it looks the goods. having come from regular cambered boards, i always used to mash the crap out of the edge with a file before riding- i usually would detune the board pretty harshly once, then simply do upkeep with a diamond stone.

what did you guys with evo-r's do? did you simply just bevel? did you de-tune around the tip/tail? ordinarily i would have detuned the whole edge on both toes/ heels, but im wondering if simply de-tuning the tip/tail will be more than enough to have the board catch-free for learning new spins in the park and not trainwrecking myself.

any info would be great!

cheers guys

I have detuned tip and tail and 2 degree base/side bevel.With this bevel and rocker its almost impossible to catch edge but still u have nice grip on ice/hardpack.
