|B.Gilly||Are we talking about detuning or beveling here. They are two different things in my eyes. Detuning the tip and tail might help with the catchy feeling you are having but I would not go further then that right now.. I am sure part of the issue is just getting back into the swing of it.|

Detune that board dude. I bought an 2011 Never Summer SL and i took it on a park run. Went up on a box and chipped the topsheet on my bottom right corner. The edge can still catch so better just detune or be sorry.
DONT LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU

Funny this came up, I had just written Never Summer to find out what they set their base and edge to on my Legacy and this is the reply I got from Vince with the explanation as to why they set it to 0 and 90. Also I second the awesome factory wax job....it lasts a while. As for my Legacy, I have a 1/1 bevel for all mountain riding and detuned the tip and tail so it doesn't catch on the hard pack.
From Vince at Never Summer:
"Sorry for the late reply. We flat grind both the base and edge 0 degree. No bevel, here. We believe it is more important to have a smooth base and edge than a bevel for snowboarding. With all your weight on one edge you can dig in deeper than say a skier that would want a bevel. Obviously wax is super important. We love the Saucer Wax, it blends molybdenum which is very slick so it works awesome on cold, dry snow. Then it would have florocarbon or teflon for wet snow. Combined with graphite to last. It works great on all phases of the mountain."

Try a bevel first because once you take the bite out of an edge by detuning, it's a pain in the ass to get any kind of bite back into it.

funny how people detune boards just coz 'they heard' its a good thing without even understanding the need to do it..
ride it, master it, THEN detune it to your needs.
