What do I need to do to my board for boxes and rails?
From a tuning perspective, should I detune the board? Do you need to grind the edges down to the base of the board? Forgive me if these are stupid questions, but I catch all the time on boxes and rails.
Depends on the board. Are you using a park specific board or an all mountain board? I know some guys who prefer to grind down their edges no matter the board, but if they try to bring that thing anywhere other than the park they are useless.
I'm sure there is someone more knowledgable on here since I've never been a huge park monster myself but if you want to stick in the park, it might be a good idea to get a board specificly for rails and boxes if you already aren't using one.
1. Detune the tip and tail
2. Like Dysantic said, you can grind the edges down to nothing, but if you want to ride elsewhere or hard snow, that's gonna be tough. I say bevel your base edge 2 degrees and see what happens there. It'll be great for riding park and good for all mountain.
