Detune for freestyle?
Ok so I just got a 156 ride kink that im using for jibbing and butter, and I was wondering if I need to detune my tip and tail. I saw s video on youtube and the guy said for freestyle it would be best to detune your tip and tail and also to detune your board near the tail where it starts to bend up. Would this be a good idea and is there any shops that can detune it for me if it would benefit me?

Here is the video: YouTube - Detuning a snowboard

Bickering aside, yes, Ride is reputable as well. IMO, don't worry about the nitty gritty, just wax your board and go ride. The board will naturally start to detune itself with time...

I always detune the tip and tail, even on my longer carving board. It helps prevent the nose and tail from grabing especially when your tryin to go straight.
