bubb_rubb Personally, I like to detune my edges a little bit. On my last board they were razor sharp and it was a little sketchy the first day.

maiden9494 thanks for the replys.. i waxed the board not long ago, with an old iron, and i picked up some universal wax and a file. And as for the edges, im going to go ahead with it tomorrow and try it anyway. Going to pick up the tools to tune the edges during the summer seeings this is my last day tomorow. thanks again!

Flick Montana Factory wax will probably last you a day and I'm sure the edges won't ruin your day the way they are. But you might pick up some gear for the next trip. You save money in the end when you wax and tune the board yourself.

kMc i just dont feel like it's that big of a deal for one day, and shouldnt prevent him/her from riding. its something that should be looked into before next season for sure though, but i was just talking about for tomorrow.

MunkySpunk If I may disagree regarding factory edges. I'm not sure what K2's factory bevels are, but depending on that and where you board, you may need to re-edge and detune. You're going to probably want a 1 degree base bevel as a beginner and possibly up to a 2 degree side edge bevel depending on the type of snow you predominantly board on.

kMc im sure the edges are fine. factory wax sucks, so you should ideally wax it before riding, but if its just for the last day of the season i dont think its that huge of a deal.

maiden9494 thanks, just another thing.. the guy said it was no need to touch the edges or wax the board because the factory already did this. At the moment i don't have anything to wax or sharpen, detune the edges and i might take it out for a ride tomorrow for the last dday of the season.Is this a good idea, or should i wait and wax it again and detune and sharpen the edges?
