How to detune a Skate Banana

I got a Lib Tech Skate Banana. This is my first reverse camber board.

How should I detune the tip/tail?

Not sure if this is relevant but the sidewall is in 3 sections: white tip, multicolor sidecut, white tail.
Should I use the colors as a guide and detune the edge at white parts?

Thanks!

You dont need to detune the tip and tail...there's no edge on them.

every mervin deck i have owned i detune the entire board with a gummy stone. With the mag traction i feel that i don't need a sharp edge on them to carve... plus fuck edges and doing boxes/rails

Well, right now I'm working on buttering. I'll do a little bit of rails but not primarily my main time on mountain. I'll do some jumps too, which I heard the skate banana isn't all that great at.

Besides, I thought it was better to give it a 3 degree edge bevel for rails vs. "detuning the side edge". This way, you maintain carving performance while still reducing rail catching.

I just want to make it more forgiving when buttering and landing spins.
