recommendations for a new park snowboard?

Post by Caledfwlch on Mon Nov 08, 2010 3:30 pm

anyone ride park here?

I'm planning to purchase a new board. Right now I'm rocking a 152, Capita Stairmaster Extreme 2009. I might drop it down to 149-151, depending on the make.

Anyways, I need a good jib, flex-i board. box/rails, something forgiving on the landings, and half-pipe ready. twin is a must.

and no Burtons, I don't want the new binding set, otherwise I wouldn't be able to swap my equipment.



Has anyone tried the Yes Type? Ride Society? Forum Destory? Banana Skate?

Dude, you missed the ski/boarding party. Saturday, we all went down to Granville Theatre and watched an epic movie, and the after party was at the post modern. At the club with the toques!

duuude nooooo... burton blows ass this year in the park, if anything i have to reccomend GNU park pickle... judging by the size of your current board i'd say were around the same hieght so i'd reccomend a 151 ish.. don't deviate too much cause its an extremely light board. Perfect pipe board with a freestyle background, all round edging with tapered edges and lifted nose and tail. can't post the link cause im at work atm.. but when i get home i'll post it for you... or you can look it up between now and then. srsly though... solid board

its very true Burton atm is really sucking this year i dno what they are doing wrong but its odd

park wise i have been riding Sapients for years and i wont stop any time soon they r fuckin super light but you will still have amazing control as well i would say if anything dont get a longer board try for one a bit shorter then ur current one like when i ride pipe i go with a board around my the hight of my neck/chin where as down hill freestyle shit its about bridge of my nose (i have alot of boards LOL)

Yea, I've decided on a Reverse Camber.

Either the Banana or Pickle; I sound like a healthy mofo.

the us is intentionally devalue-ing the us dollar for a few reasons

1. massive trade deficit-cheaper dollar = cheaper us stuff and more tourists
2. the dirty chinese wont unlink there currency from the dollar, by lowering the value of the dollar oil which is based off the dollar
rises in price and guess who buys more oil than us right now?
China.
just to name a few reasons be prepared to see an even weaker dollar in the future till at least those 2 things are taken care of.

Final Decision: 153' Park Pickle


Now, boots and bindings. Currently, I have Rome Drunks, they are sick! And I have Delta Rides, they are light, responsive, but something about them I'm not too sure about.
