Any need to detune Arbor Element?

After reading many FAQ's on the forums I thought I needed to detune my new board, I ran my fingers over the tip and tail and it didnt seem very sharp. I called arbor to see what they had to say and they said that they do something at the factory and it wasn't necessary to wax or detune it.

Needless to say I waxed it anyway but am looking for input on if I need to buy a file and gummy stone / do any work to the edges? I dont go in the park except to go off a few small jumps, no rails or anything like that.

why would you detune if your not riding rails?

The tip and the tail of the board- when do you use those when riding? I dont want the edges to catch unexpectedly such as when buttering.
