Do you ride a lot of rails? I find it's impossible to keep an edge on a park board. With regular use in the park you'll shear your edges and they will eventually need to be filed to keep them from getting catchy. Out here in the northeast where the slopes are really icy the only way around it is to have a park board that is aggressively detuned and an all mtn board that you keep fresh and away from the rails.

No...if you want a bevel take it to a shop, they'll do it with a ceramic machine. To detune look it up on youtube...you'll need a bastard file and a diamond stone.

You can do the bevel yourself, you need to buy the proper file and guides though and they arent always cheap. Never attempt to do this free hand. If it's a jib board just ride it through the parking lot a few times
