Best do it all board you have ridden

ice, powder, park jumps, backcountry jumps, rails, trees, you name it. Has anyone found a board that can handle everything you throw at it?

Well, depends on your focus. Some of these will land a little more park or a little more all mountain focused, but I could ride any of them as a one board quiver: Burton Custom FV, Parkitect, EL, Process Camber, K2 Happy Hour, Fastplant, Raygun, Yes Jackpot, Basic, Signal Freedom Machine flat or camber, Og Flat, Capita DOA, Flow Era, Blackout, Lib Hot Knife, Bataleon Whatever, Goliath, Funkin, Echelon Orion, Salomon Assassin, Time Machine, Rossi Retox, Nitro Rook, Arbor Blacklist, Westmark, Coda, Del Rey, Slash Happy Place, if 157 is your size the Capita DBX...

There are probably more...

You're looking for an all-mountain board. The good old jack of all trades, master of none.

My suggestion would be to take an honest look at your riding style and what you do most. Get a board better suited for that style of riding that can also handle the rest of what you want to throw at it.

I just picked up a 13/14 lib tech skate banana that I'm goin to be usin for everything

I wanted a twin tip rocker and have read the magnitraction holds really well on ice so I'm super doped to try it.

The negatives I've read about the skate banana is that it can wash out on big jumps, and that it has some chatter at high speeds

I'm 5'10'' 155lbs and went with a 154 size

No Mervin boards either . If I could only have one board it would be a Lib TRS or Trice. But imo the TRS does everything ok but nothing very well (except for edge hold on ice)...hence the reason for the quiver.

Closest I can find after going throu a slew of boards to find the one best at most.

Nidecker Snowboards - Snowboards - Ultralight

Great in power, great on groomers, great for jumps, fast and responsive. Not a board for parks, but thats a completely different sport all together.

lib tech banana magic for me. it floats decent, holds up well at any speed in any condition, holds edge on ice, works ok for rails, lots of pop for jumps. i don't have experience with some of the newer boards though; like the hot knife, happyhour, assassin. I think one of those would take its place in my quiver

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'
