Default Jib detuning

So I picked up a retardedly cheap Rome Artifact to use on my backyard jib setup (nearly done!) But now I need to figure out what to do with the edges.

So, for someone who has absolutely no idea what they're doing on jibs, what's the best way to tune edges? Or should I just round the edge off all the way around the board?

This thing will never see snow, so anything's fair game.

If it will never see snow, angle grinder.

There are some good de-tuning videos on YouTube. All you really need to do is round the edges with a file. It won't ride for shit on ice or real hard pack after doing it but sounds like you won't really need it to anyways.

Thanks for the input, there will be nothing that any sane person would recognize as an edge on this bitch once I'm done with it.
