You could use sandpaper, if you feel like spending 3 weeks straight on your board. Or if you find some 1 grit (in that case go outside and grab a rock). Just invest in file and stone. I like smaller stones cause then I can bring it with me on the mountain in case I'm stickin on them boxes and all that shiznat.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Filing Yo...

Dude, Go To Any Hardware Store And Buy A Fine Or Extra Fine File For Metal Work. Take The Board Outta The Wrapper, And Between The Nose And Tail (the Whole Effective Edge) File It A Couple Or Several Times , Depending On Your Personnal Prefernces Or Needs. To Do That Hold The File At A 45% Angle Across The Edge And Dull It Down. As For The Ends Of The Board, They're Usually Filed Down Until Completly Dull. No More Edges To Catch Dude. Not Sure Where You Live, But If Your Out East Or Like To Ride Lots Of Pipe, Keep The Effective Edge Sharper, Or Invest In A Tool Which Sharpens Edges At Preset %, Usually 88% Or 90%. These Are Usually Found At Ski Shops And Are Pretty Cheap. You Don't Really Need Sharp Edges At All If Your Riding Tons Of Pow Or Just Doing Jumps All Day Long. As Somebody Who Files Down Several New Boards A Year, Trust Me You Don't Want To Be Hanging Up On Edges When Your Life Could Depend On It. Hahaha Good Luck Dude. Peace

[/SIGPIC]I ENJOY FINE DINING, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, BALD EAGLE LIVERS, BABY SEAL FLIPPERS, CHILLED MONKEY BRAINS AND SPOTTED OWL(TASTES LIKE CHICKEN) BON APPETITE!
