Huge help. I knew this forum would be helpful! Sounds like maybe a Machete is a good call. Everyone recommending a stiff board for me makes sense, but at the same time I don't want to screw myself for when I AM in the terrain park.
I'm also one of "those" people that isn't too into buying the generic board...so a Burton Custom just doesn't sound like a fun purchase, even though I know it is what it is because it's good at what it is ha. Would love to find a board to satisfy my needs that is more boutique. Butttttt I know, I know...get the board that's best for me despite it's name.
