Default what tools should i get?

i want to get my new snowboard ready. from what i've read, it seems that i need to detune the tail and tips, bevel the base edge and wax it. (am i correct, is that it?)all the examples i see on detuning the tips are using files, but i notice their boards appear to have metal around the tips while mine doesnt. should u use something else to detune mine? also you guys know of any good kits that have everything?

I rode with a guy yesterday who had such a beater board and he ripped just as hard as I did with a super tuned board. So if your board can't hold an edge on ice just find some texture to turn on. Meaning point it over the ice and blast or dump your speed someplace that the snow is softer. Seek out the texture...
