Polishing & Detuning

A polished edge runs smoother and faster, plus it makes turning and carving more enjoyable. Slight burrs and nicks do make a difference! It is recommended that the edges be de-burred with a fine diamond stone, and polished as required with a Gummi stone to maintain a smooth glide.

Detuning prevents catching an edge to make the ski/board less grabby or hooky for easier control. To de-tune simply dull the edge using a Gummi stone (held at a 45° angle) at the tip and tail contact areas (about 3 inches each end). Note: on short shaped skis, detuning may make them twitchy because there is less effective edge surface.
