Dakine Super Tune - $80

For beveling, get a shop to do it. You will really fuck your board up if you don't know what you're doing.

Good way to dull your file.

Beveled hand sharpeners are a huge waist of time. You will ruin your edge. So get a shop to do it. There is a way to do it with a reg file but its to complicated to explain here.

Use the hand file tool to sharpen. Stone to deburr.

After you get it beveled you won't need to sharpen for a while.

I get my board done twice a year. I have a 3 degree base bevel done before the season starts then I have them basegrind it and bevel it again. I ride the East Coast and a lot of park/rails so I find it helps. Have a shop do your edges...you won't come close to getting it right doing it by hand.
