I monkey grease the edges all sloppy like, sand the topsheet down to the carbon and slather Crisco on the bottom after every run.




Seriously though, nothing special, some wax helps, regular edge tune/detune tip, for reg mtn shred on a wide twin.

No must haves, but enjoyment rises with great snow for fresh tracks in the trees!

On my rock / rail / whatever board - 2 degree base bevel, detune tips, and sharp side edges.

Waxing almost every day and it sure pays! (don't do much structuring, though)

I also file my sidewalls / topsheet edges to round them a bit so that skiers can do less damage when they step all over my machine in the lift line. I hate it when they start slicing strings and chunks from the topsheet My board doesn't have to be pristine, but I am only OK with what I do to it...
