powder? in Pennsylvania?? hehe. those tips are kinda weird yeah.. but i can ride a 150 and it will have the same amount of board on the snow as a typical 155.. which is what i ride anyway.. plus the board is lighter if I'm understanding the whole concept behind it.
Looks like a board i could definitely have for a couple of years. Of course, next year when i'm even more serious i can just pick up another board for pow
Yeah 09... its an early clearance.. and its new (not demoed/blem etc), think I'm gonna do it.. I am assembling the funds now.
Okay so not only you people are telling me the jibpan looks like the thing to do if i liked the WWW.. but my friends too. Now the question is board size.. should I go with a 150.. or 153? I'm 160lbs.. the burton ltr board i ride is a 155. Oh and I will give the link AFTER i buy mine haha
and binding advice?? I'm thinking the K2 formulas.. they were on the WWW i rode and they were nice.
Formulas are solid. I ride Sweaters on my 07/08 Jibpan (it's the same binding with gel in the ankle strap that doesnt really make a difference...). It's not a pure park binding by any means, but its got enough flex on the inner side of the bindings (assymetrical highback) to lock in butters and enough forgiveness to land sketch spins.
If you want a more park-oriented ride, get Rome 390s.
