That Never Summer 0/0 is a bitch for sure. Better be on your game or you get whupped.
I put a 1/1 last year on the Evo and it smoothed it out big time. Still 0/0 on my cobra right now, and it seems ok. Might put 1/1 on it as well since I'm not getting very technical on it any time soon.

|Casual||I only sharpen to de-bur, not a fan of sharp edges but then again, I'm a buttery pressing 180ing junky and I really hate when by edge hooks up. But ya, if its got burs on it then tune it, if you feel like your sliding out on hardpack and you don't like it, sharpen up. If theres nothing wrong with your riding experience then leave it alone, I can recal many times when I caught an edge after sharpening way back in the day so if you don't need to then don't do it.|

I didn't see you list your side bevel, which is the one you'll really want to find out. You won't use the file unless the edge is fucked up or you want to change the bevel angle. However, you will want to set your tool to the proper side bevel angle so you can use those diamond stones properly. You need to know the boards side bevel angle before you can properly setup the tool.

Long story short I did my edges only to end up at 91*. Having only the 90*/88* edge file option I re did them at 88* which put me back at the stock 89* but with the 1* base bevel.
For the record.... I must have been high when I mentioned earlier that I used the 90* tool on my base edge. At least I hope I was..... because that would have been a problem.
I've since ordered this kit -
Along with some gummi stones.
I'll add one more degree to the side bevel and leave the base alone. That will put me at 1* base and 88* side.
From that point on I'll have the tools to easily maintain very sharp edges.
I can't believe how much I've slacked on overall maintenance this year. It'll be interesting to see the difference on the runs I take over and over.

So I just ordered and adjustable tool and some diamond stones to tackle sharpening my edges... quick question. Based on what I can find, it appears like my board (Man's Board) comes with a variable edge bevel.
"Detuned tip and tail with a 1 degree edge bevel in key parts of the sidecut and a 2 degree bevel between the feet. Solid edge hold with no hang ups."
Question... should I follow that guidance when sharpening myself and judge the "between the feet" zone for the 2 degree bevel?

I have a K2 Raygun. I ride groomed hills, no park.
Looking around it says the K2 Raygun has "The edges have a three degree edge bevel."
Baseline: All Terrain Rocker®
Shape: Twin Hyper Progressive
Stance: Setback ¾” (19mm)
Glass: Biax / ICG10
Base: 2000 Extruded
Base Bevel: 3°
If I am going to sharpen my own board should I be setting the file guide to 3 degree then?
I picked up this Multi Edge Tool
Just want to make sure I do this right
