Its a sintered base so just make sure you wax the hell out of it often.
I'd watched the video a couple of times and I think I can have plenty of fun with this one.

About the waxing.. Is there a wax you would advise me to use? Cold, hot, brand?

Last season I was using Burton Fluoro wax and it did fine but was a bit expensive. I looked into waxes and heard allot of good things about Hertel wax so that what im using this season. Ive got a large brick of their "Racing FC739" All Temperature wax, bit more expensive but whatever. Many seem to really like the Hertel "Super Hot Sauce" all temp wax they make, and the pricetag for it is very reasonable. You can order it up on amazon too.

NP man, im not even close to an expert or anything, just did some of the research when I had the same sort of questions. Honestly don't worry too much about all the details and just have fun. Lol doesn't really matter what your riding when your beginner anyway it wont make you much better, with the exception of magnetraction maybe lol

Yeah I know but maybe you saved me from a couple of hours research (Y)
I know I won't get any better and that's cool as long as I don't get any worse as well

It's a bit stiffer park twin. More built for jumpers than jibbers.

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

A good base grind with structure and all temp wax is all you need unless you're riding Bear sludge or below -10 degrees.

I was also looking at the DC Mega Ply 2014, when a friend of mine said to me that I could get more fun with the Nitro T1 because of my level of riding right now. He said it was because of the camber that the DC has.
For a beginner/entry level which one would you choose?

Thanks!

Camber can be a bit discouraging for beginner riders, as you'll catch edges more often and eat snow because of it. Rocker is more friendly to beginner riders, and different kind of hyrids as there is more than just the choice of rocker, camber, or flat.

Here are a few different sources of information that are worth reading on:

I have been looking at this Nitro Team "Gullwing" which they say should have both some camber and some rocker. Do you know something about Nitro's "Gullwing" series? "http://nitrousa.com/en-gb/men/snowboards"

When it all comes down to the final I really just want a fun and playful board that I can ride and progress the next (at least) couple of seasons.
