neversummer bevel?

Im bringing my new neversummer revolver in for its first tune and would like to know what edge bevel i should tell them to cut it at. Im pretty sure its 2 degrees for both bottom and side but would like to know for sure before i go.

You said it was a new board and your are bringing it in for a tune? Is it really roughed up? Not sure if you need to do this yet, but anyway.

Burtonavenger or vman will probably know the specifics on this if there are any.

NS boards come with a 0 degree base and 90 degree side edge from the factory.

Yep thats what i have been reading after doing some research.. thanks for the reply. I ride mostly park but do enjoy some high speeds on the groomers as well. Do you think that i should put a 1 degree bevel on it. I havnt caught any edges yet on boxs or rails but im thinking it might be a good idea. I just dont want to sacrifice my carving to much. I consider myself a fairly good rider and i can lay an edge down pretty well so im thinking i should still be able to lock in with a 1 degree bevel.

I generally go over 50 days before I even think of a tune. If you're sliding out on roads, riding fences, and walls I can see it, but a tune seems to be a bit much. To me a tune means a base grind, maybe you are talking about a wax and some edge sharpening?

I've yet to keep a board long enough to ever realllllly need a true tune. The Heritage may be that first board though....

Yeah just a wax and sharpen. My bad. I dont need any ptexing or anything like that. The board is holding up VERY well. Its just feeling slightly slower and i can feel some small burs and bumps when i run my fingers along the edge.

I know I'm talking about sharpening more than anything....

Gotta wax, and I'm a p-tex snob so I've poured on all my sticks

At Manning, there's a run called "Wagon Trail" (I think) off the Orange chair that starts with a long (1/4 mile maybe?) very shallow cat track before it connects with actual slopes. I had just waxed my Heritage the night before going, and I can't believe the difference. You can't really do much to speed yourself up on that cat track unless you're a skier and use your poles a lot, so your speed over the length of the thing is directly related to how well the board slides. With the fresh wax job I was passing absolutely everyone with no effort. It was actually kind of funny the way some people seemed to be looking for an outboard motor.
