Default Beveling Basa to 88 degress?

Sup People..My question is i was thinking about beveling my base edge to 88 degrees from the factory 90.Right now I have no problem riding at 90 base/edge but would like to know if anybody else here has there set up at 88 for the base.Cause I would like to know how much of a difrence would it make on making turns.

I'm actually wondering about beveling myself. I generally freeride and hit easy jumps/rails now and then. What bevel do you think would be appropriate?

Great thanks Snowolf, I'll go with the 1/2 configuration. Now, I know there are tools for doing this (I've got some on the way) but I heard that by wrapping tape around the handle of a file that you can get the angles. Should I try this since I'm going out saturday and my tools won't be here till next week?

Hmm, not really sure I understand the side edge beveling. I can visual beveling the base edge but I can't do the same for the side edge. Since I don't have an edge tool it seems I can only do the base edge at this point unless there is a way to do the side edge with a file.

I have this same 88 degree side edge bevel. What bevel should I be looking for if I do just park and freeride, no pipe.

The edge tool that came with my Dakine kit can only do 90 and 88 degrees. Is there anyway for me to achieve the 1/2 configuration?
