HELP: Detuning New Board?

I just bought myself a Rome Artifact Rocker 10-11. Question is, I don't know if it requires detuning edges so i wont catch any slips and edges on the snow. I have never detuned a board either. So I need the most help I can get.

What type of riding do you plan on doing? If you ride park I'd recommend a full edge detune.

I'd detune it aggressively. There's no point in trying to keep an edge on a jib oriented board.

Heres a pretty good vid showing you how to do it correctly
