Wow... that is a sketchy looking longboard lol... actually, freebord did have that going for them (you could jump surprising well with them).

Anyway... back to snowboarding ... yea back in the day it was all about BIG GUNS 180cm+ snowboards like Glissade Snowboards, Radical Surfs, or Rad Air Tankers up to 200cm. I tried a Rad Air Tanker 172cm and rode a Prior WCR-M 178cm - fun for blasting down wide open bowls and surprisingly not too hard to handle in the trees... but really just not my thing. Now it's all Burton NUGs and snowskates so people can pretend they are skateboarding on the snow. I was always a snowboarder first, where you actually learn to turn and ride the slopes before learning "tricks" (I picked up skateboarding as a way to try and freeride snowboard in warm weather).
