New Board Sharpened?

Hi everyone I was just wondering if a new board from the factory has its edges sharpened or if I should have that done before heading down the slopes for the first time this season?

Vote for my tshirt design this week! Help me win 2 Grand!

they will be very sharp from the factory, actually a lot of people will dull thier edges a bit. Its called de-tuning

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

de-tune the nose and tail to keep from catching an edge

learn from me bro, just started last year and got whipped pretty badly for a couple reasons
1. I just learned, duh!
2. Just learning on hard pack/ice blows monkey Ba**s.
3. Sharp ice catching edges + newbie = the flying human thud crash affect.
I used the sharp edges as an excuse, but I just sucked. anyway got them detuned and i'll be in VT tomorrow to get in a full week of, key word >practice<

LEME HEARYA SAY OOOOOHHHHHHHH YEAHHHH!!
