Bevel used for freeriding? (no intent on railing)

So, I'm fighting with my bud on which bevel angles to use on his board... he freeride, just like me, but is insisting that he put a 2.5 base bevel and a 3 side bevel on his board. Mind you, we never hit rails....

i say he keep it @ 1/1 or 1/2 for ice when we go to the east.

what do you guys say?

wow! suddenly everyone has gone bonkers over bevels!

a new buzzword for da kidz?

CASI teaches that for snowboarding, the only bevel angel to have is 90 degrees. any difference to this, is to stray into the realms of skiers!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

I hate riding on thin pow (sliding) and then hit a hardpack patch of ice/hardpack...kinda throws the board off balance (hooking up in the middle of a turn) 1/1 degree should be fine for now though? dont boards from the factory come in at 0 0 90 anyways?

i'd have to reedge the board if i wanted to make the angle less steep (more aggressive) right?

thnx!

i think all burton boards come with no bevel. others (such as rome) come with 1-2 degrees.

save for rounding the tip and tail, i think most keep their edges put after getting whatever edge they're looking for (1 degree for myself).

so basically, only if i feel that i am catching too much, only then should i shave to a .5 degree or 1 degree base (and matching 90 side) right?
