Default Edge Tuning Help (DC Ply) Park Rider

Hey, so I know numerous people make threads asking the same (or a similar) question about how they should tune their edges. Anyway, some idiot at the mountain I ride at thought a 3 deg. bevel meant a complete detune with a bastard file and my current board has zero edge and I can't seen to get used to it/I'm blowing out all over the place. I just ordered a DC Ply and the board looks legit, I'm super stoked on it and want to make sure I don't screw the edges up on this one.
I ride the park - jumps and jibs both, I probably spend more time sending bigger kickers than I do jibbing but I still juib quite a bit and I definitely don't want a razor sharp 90 that's gonna hang me up on rails and such. Still, I spend a decent amount of time riding in less than ideal conditions and need somewhat of an edge.

I'm pretty nervous about taking a file to the board and I'm not sure if it's the right move, but I'm also worried about beveling because once it's gone it's not coming back. My old setups felt legit but I'm not even sure what I did to get them there.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

You have to have a good file guide, steady hand and some experience to do it correctly. If you want it done, go to a shop with a Wintersteiger and have them put a 3 degree base edge bevel on it. That will leave you with a 93 degree corner and you'll want them to probably bring the side edge in to 88 or so leaving you with a 91 corner which will be a little more useful. I've ridden 88 base / 89 side on my reverse camber board and it feels about right. I rarely retune it. I like the naturally dulled edges.

Yes, I will add only put a 3 degree if that's what you know you want. You indicated 3 degrees which is the only reason why I said that but if you are unsure, have them do less. It's like a haircut. You can always get it cut more, later.
