honestly if the board is designed for park riding there is no reason to take it to a shop and have them change the edges to your super specific degrees, it will jib fine. just like trav said, just detune your edges and call it good.

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.

If you're going to use this snowboard purely for jibbing, why not just file all the edges off? The only reason people keep edges on is for riding other features/freeriding, but if it's just your jib/rail snowboard, you must as well just detune all the edges.

if ur board is a park board then theres no need to bevel your board, just dull out the edges. Once you bevel your edges, its going to take a lot of filing to regain the edges back to factory specs. If its a park board chances are that your edges are @ 91 degrees, meaning your base bevel is at 1 degree which makes it less catchy on rails.

Your being too anal about this, ride ur board first and see how it feels on features. If you dont like it then slightly dull out the edges, and if ur really being persistent, then have the shop give u 2 degree bevels on both the side and base edges which will give your board a 90 degree edge while still maintaining the "sharpness" that you yearn for

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

Take a file and just file your edges down if you are that concerned about your edges.

ok since we are on the topic of filing edges for a park board, i got a question of my own. My park board is my old all mountain board, a rossignol imperial. yes i know its fairly stiff and not a great choice for a park board, but since i spend most of my time dodging trees its not like im spending a whole bunch of time in the park anyway. After using it pretty hard for three years are the edges detuned enough to use it in the park without catching, or should i file them down some more? If i should file them down how much?

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
