Say wha??? He called the DH a park board, yet recommended the Machete for all-mountain? Did he really even toss in the completely different Highlife into the mix with the Machete?

Where are you shopping again? Sports Authority?

Machete is Ride's all-mountain freestyle board with an emphasis on the park. DH line is Ride's all-mountain freestyle board with an emphasis on all-mountain. The Highlife is a pure all-mountain powder board that is designed for the all-mountain rider that does a decent amount of powder riding as well.

Machete - Mid-flex

DH - Mid-stiff

High Life - Stiff

Get advice here, ignore everything that comes out of shop guy's mouth (unless it's something about discounts) and go straight to a purchase.
