Basic edge tool for the side jobs. Most can be set at either 90 deg. or somethin like 88 deg., some fancier ones have more settings. Like Hound says, this is likely all you would need to do occasionally to keep edges fresh.
Straight file for base, with tape wound around to get desired angles.

I don't plan on changing the base edge, I just thought it needed some sharpening sometimes.
Since it is a freestyle oriented board then I guess the side edge is 90' degree?
I'm just trying to figure out which edge tuning equipment I need to keep the board in good condition.

|Snow Hound||My guess would be that's in reference to the base edge rather than the side edge? Unless you're getting a base grind you won't be altering the base edge angle. The side edge is what most diy tuners like myself actually sharpen.|

my board is described as: the Freestyle Edge Bevel is a 2-degree edge holding tune throughout the key parts of the sidecut moving to a 3-degree bevel between the feet
How should I proceed when sharpening edges? Should I have different angled file guides for different parts of the board? Thanks!

Just grabbed a Toko snowboard and a Toko Ski roto brush with white nylon heads for the first time to do my boards and ski's. Have been using a combination of brushes copper/nylon/horsehair for the last a few years.
Wow..., they are initially expensive $$$ but are absolutely brilliant and so quick. The base looks fantastic after a couple of light passes with structure lines running from tip to tail.
Well worth the acquisition if you're fully into tuning.

3 Degrees off the sidewall is a lot. And it is hard to go back. The farther below 90 you go, the sharper it will be initially, but the faster it will dull and chip.

Not a video, but great reading and great photos.
By the time you read over everything on this site you will have a very good idea of exactly how to tune a board. You will also understand exactly what you are doing.
I still refer back to it from time to time.
