i gues my real question is if double dog rides similar to gullwing?
Closest thing to Gullwing is Flow's I-rock or EZ-rock. That said, for a 2012 board that will compliment your Sub well try the Destroyer DoubleDog over the Youngblood. Its a touch softer which really just means it takes less muscle to ride and pop, it felt damper to me too. Others would be the Signal Omni, Fastplant... I'll have some more suggestions in like two days. Flow has a new board that should be really good, its a touch softer version of the Quantum. DC also has a new one that almost all their pros have made their pro model, the Ply. Regular camber between the feet and then it kinda mellows out in the tips so more of your contact pressure is under your feet. Honestly if you want a really good jump board, get straight camber. More power, control, and pop.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
