Yep, pretty true. Don't be afraid of going with a relatively "unforgiving" board. It'll just sharpen your skills quicker. A couple of face planting edge catches and you'll learn to quit doing that shit.

Am I wrong thinking that the Raptor would fit that category pretty well? It carves great, is nicely dampened and glides through crud without bucking. I assume it's also pretty catch free.

He also wants to work on jibbing and other park stuff. Nowhere near the Raptor's forte.

I'd never be as overbold and post in a thread where park stuff is a prerequesite

Wow. I must have just read another thread or something and came up with that.

I want a forgiving board that's good for carving, aggressive riding in the pow, park and backcountry

Realistically these are all the things you think you want out of a snowboard. What you should be looking at, mid flex all mountain decks. The most common snowboard on the market.

Flow Drifter, Yes Basic, Burton Custom FV, Burton Process Camber, Rossignol Angus, K2 Turbodream, K2 Raygun, DC Mega, Bataleon Goliath, Rome Agent Rocker, Nitro Team GW, Salomon Time Machine...

Only ridden Angus and Nitro Team GW, but being an Beginner-Intermediate rider I'd say the Nitro was pretty damn unforgiving. It dug me craters whenever I was sloppy on it. I'd say my BSOD is more unforgiving.

I'll throw that in btw: Capita's The Black Snowboard of Death (2014+).

2:squared

A2+B2=C2

Nivek, what is C2?
