Which board for jib / rails etc?

Hi Guys,

So I've been out to France and unfortunately that's me done for the season.

I will now just be hitting indoor domes once or twice a month, but mainly to jib around, and work on boxes and progress to rails, whilst still hitting jump (indoor so green line type kickers)

I ride a DH2 normally 152 (i am 5'8, 69kg and 7.5uk boot size). I like my DH2.6 for edge control, speed, and kickers, but its not very playful and feels catchy on boxes etc.

Any recommendations on playful jib rail etc boards, and should i stay 152? I have seen this which i have been told is good?

VOLKL JIBSTER MENS FREESTYLE SNOWBOARDS152 | Snowboards4u

Thanks
Jay

I know the Jibster used to be a good board but I also dont know anyone thats ridden it since like 2006.

Go to jib boards for me, Signal Park, Echelon Archer, Flow Verve, K2 Weapon, Ride Kink, Capita Outdoor, Yes Public, Burton Parkitect, Rossi Rock'n'Rolla, Nitro Swindle, or a Bataleon Disaster.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Thanks man, the Signal Park sounds pretty spot on.

Is there any reason why i shouldnt be using my DH2.6 on features like rails etc? Is it just im a noob at them yet, and just need more time? I dont want to be buying a board just to make up for my noob riding. Although my DH2.6 feels very stiff and catchy, when i ride a feature it feels like it wants to throw me of at any moment.

Never ridden anything else so all i know is my DH2.6.

I've emailed Snowboarding Board Shop | Pants Jacket Gear Sale | SolsticeSupply.com to see they will ship me a Signal Park to the UK. Will weigh up the costs with that and the Jibster.

Thanks
