Default The more I look around ...

I previously made a topic in wich I had allready suggested a few boards myself but the more I look around the more I feel as if there's so much more out there :/

Therefore I think it'd be better to make a general thread asking what kind of setup you would advice me to use.

I way 75Kg and am 177cm tall. I'm gonna use the board mostly for park ( 85 - 90% ) but want it to work when I go on a trip aswell ( I don't know yet what I will do but I guess I'll want to try some powder :x ). In the park I'm just all-around , jumps , rails , boxes , jibbing ...
I'm an intermediate skilled rider ( tailgrabs and 180's on jumps is where I'm at at the moment ).

Oh btw I'm from Belgium so I don't know about them but if there's any american-only brands , they're not for me !

Thx !

And could you tell me why you'd pick the evil twin over the destroyer ? It's just that the evil twin looks kinda fucked up with those beta bindings ...

TBT rocks the house and hence why he suggested the evil twin . And also what i rock and love. I just have the black burton cartels on it so it matches nice . Not that i really give a d@mn though.

But I was wondering. Won't it be difficult to switch back to a normal shape if I'm used to TBT ? I don't know if i'll keep riding bataleon and the fact that they are the only brand offering TBT kinda has me worried. Plus I'm also worried that the board might act a bit weird on rails cuz of the shape ...

Honestly its really not a huge bend in the board. It really just makes things more fun . I haven't had the chance to fully test out the tbt but so far it just makes everything smoother.
