Edge Sharpening for Burton boards with PDE

Hi All,

So I have this Burton board with PDE (Pressure distribution Edges). It's a 2010 model with many days of riding on it and I have never had the edges sharpened. I am looking to bringing it into a shop to get the edges sharpened as I am noticing less and less grip on hardpack terrain with this board.

Since this is a board with PDE, is there anything that I need to pay attention to?(i.e. do they need to be sharpened differently compared to a board that doesn't have PDE). I am not planning to sharpen it myself but I am just curious about this. Can these edges be messed up if not sharpened properly?

Another question regarding these PDE boards--how durable are these edges? I suppose they wear out over time just like a board that doesn't have PDE?

Thanks in advance for your input
