Detuning park skis?
I am new to the park and people are telling me that i should smooth my edges out. I dont know a lot about this so anyone with any experience with detuning park skis that could help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
it seemed ridiculously easy on skis. Youre only sliding a foot of your ski. Dull the fuck out of that part.

if your new to the park you don't need to detune your skis. You will slide on rails and boxes fine and they will detune naturally. Honestly not worth sacraficing your edge
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
what I did that worked really well is I took a file (VERY LIGHTLY) to the tip and tails and underfoot (about 6in. from the ends of the binding each way). then I got a piece of sand sponge ($3 or $4) and sanded the whole ski. it got rid of the burrs that the file created and also lightly dulled them too. I went this past weekend and had no problems on anything
pretty sure this thread exists, but just to guide you in the right direction here it is:
Do it I caught my edge with brand new skis and broke my collar bone
