My area is fairly hilly, so that wouldn't be a problem for the freeboard, and I am generally leaning in that direction since it can supposedly give you a very buttery feeling that is similar to snowboarding. I am not trying to do anything really crazy with it because I don't want to do some dumb shit and risk fucking up my snow season. I am just looking to do some hill carving and that kind of thing. So, any opinions on this subject? I would be much obliged.
2 different animals really...try both and decide. I found Freebording more committing, but with a hill really close I would give it a more convinced try. Wear protections.
