They do but not in the same design! Haha I know that should be the last thing to care about though! But I can't help it!
I havent done any freestyle yet, just the odd spin on the flat in the domes, but I'm wanting to learn rails and boxes etc! So will be taking lessons on this, as well as small jumps! Don't plan on hitting any big jumps!
Most of the year the board will be used is snow domes, probably 2-3 weeks will be on mountains (We don't get much snow here in the UK! ) But when I am on a mountain I'll just want to try keep up with speed etc on the piste's. Probably not going to go looking for powder!

This will be the first board I've bought! I've been using rental equipment untill now, and seem to have settled on 155 at the moment, but the rental stuff I get isn't flexible at all! And it does feel a tad longer. Although on my first holiday I was using about a 157! Was good for on the runs though!
