Sounds fine, if that's what you did last time. Is there anything you wanted to do differently from the last time your board was tuned?

First I would find out what the factory bevel is. If you know it is zero then 1.5 is probably fine. I know Smokin' come with a 2 degree bevel straight from the factory.

yeah, well it was another shop that did my last board, and the guy that tuned it isnt working there now. i just told them to detune tip and tail and do a 1.5" base edge bevel..dno if thats what he did forsure or not, so hoping the new shop will do it about the same..

Why not wait and see how it rides before making any changes? Especially changes that are hard to undo, like the base bevel.

Then I don't get the question. If you already have the same board and know what tuning you like, then why ask? If you have a different board (it is not entirely clear from your posts), why not give the new board a try as-is first before making (potentially irreversible) changes?

i asked the question cause i wasnt totally sure if this was what was done to my old board or not, it was just close to it i guessed from what i could get out of the shop owner...so i wanted to see if what i was told to have done was good for my riding i do, thats it
