edge tuning/detuning for Never Summer SL 2011

I've been riding a fairly new Never Summer SL 2011 155cm, but have been so busy I haven't bothered with edge maintenance. I still need to adjust my bevel angles and detune tip/tail...but have a few Q's regarding this:

1. Anybody know what default factory side and base bevel angles the Never Summer SL 2011 comes in?

2. For detuning the Never Summer SL 2011 tip and tail, how far down the side edges should I go? With a cambered board, I'd normally detune up to the contact points, but the "contact point" is not obvious with rocker-camber.

Thanks

the contact point on a rocker board is determined by the widest point of the board. So basically the wide part where the side cut meets the nose/tail is your contact point. Or you can have a friend strap in and stand on a flat surface and where the nose/tail swoops down, right where it touches the surface is the contact point.

these are 2 methods for finding the same spot on the board. looking for the widest part is easier, but if you want to be precise, use the second method.

I think the SL has a factory 0 degree base and 90 degree side. Have you been catching edges?

Nah, I haven't been catching edges. I just need to detune my tip/tail, but don't want to detune tip/tail so far that it reaches into the Vario sidecut. I don't think I'm going to rebevel my edges...don't want to mess with Vario!

btw...How much does tail/tip detuning affect buttering? thanks!
