All their boards are like that. If they pre-bevel it to a higher degree than you like, it is quite hard to change. This way anyone that buys one of these sick boards, should have the knowledge of how to do basic maintenance, and therefor can create whatever bevel they want on their board

I have a 1.5* base and side angle so it stays a nice 90* for good edge hold

Do it myself. It is extremely easy and there are quite a few videos on youtube about it. Seems scarier than it actually is and if you get some good tools it is very simple.

You choose the angle you want on the tool and then drag it tip to tail on the base and side edge
