Making railed edges flush with base/ rounding the off for street/rails
I made a hasty decision last season and went to a race shop for my season tune. I'm at least a little experienced with tuning skis in a shop (having worked in tuning shops before). But when I took my Surface NoTimes to them, towards the end of the season I got them back with the edges "Railed" or no longer flush with the base. I have waited far too long to complain to the shop about this and the skis are already approaching thrashed status. So I guess what I'm looking for is a quick fix so they wont be squirrely on me next season. I'll probably end up only using them for rail/street skiing from now on anyway.
if i were you (and im no expert) would to just detune your edges like when you ride lots of park and urban.
Detune with a bastard file, or have a shop run them through an edger with a very aggressive base angle. Probably just better to grind down the edge as much as possible underfoot so it can't catch.
i personally would use an angle grinder, some people would call that overkill but that's just me. like someone said just take a good file and dull down the edges underfoot and you should be good.
Right on guys, thanks. I was a little concerned about taking too much edge off. But they already have a few fractures anyway, so who gives a fuck, eh?
