I mainly will be riding the east coast so the blacks aren't that bad. I mean I want to learn park more but I still love to go fast, as long as the board I get can handle it every now and then its fine. Nothing too crazy though.
So I'm a newbie but what exactly does "bombing" mean. I'm assuming just flying down the mountain? And when your trying to just stop and you turn the board sideways does the TBT make you loose friction that you'd normally get on another board? Not sure the best way to explain that, but do you loose control a bit with the TBT?
Nope, you lose zero control with tbt. Bombing is just flying down, sometimes in more technical terrain. If you want to learn park more but aren't going to stay in the park, don't get an ET or EVO. I have more than one snowboard. The ET is my park board. Goliath is my all mountain board.
