Dude I just took the time to read all your posts on this forum and if I was you I would probably just sit back and read for a while, do some searching, soak in everything you read and post after that. You are going to get torn to shreds trying to tell everyone you can 360 off anything and boardslide anything but can't pull a simple manual on flat ground. Don't bullshit a forum full of bullshitters because we aren't buying it. Everyone here started as a newb sometime.

I ride an Artifact and although it's soft as hell it won't save your life if you can't butter. You still have to know how to butter period. I spent a lot of time practicing this winter and now when I hop on one of my all mountain boards I can still do it almost as well, it's just a little more difficult. Keep your board, narrow that stance to shoulder width centered on the board and practice practice practice. I notice on my artifact it's actually a little easier to butter it when the stance is narrower. When I first got it I set it up really wide just to see what it would be like and it was horrible not to mention the fact I looked like one of those little rats with their pants around their ankles and their fucking retarded looking bandannas. When I narrowed it I got more pop from my ollies and it was much easier to manual. Good luck and think before you type.

When the fuck did we get ice cream?

Along the lines of the initial question, I was looking into getting some Ride EX bindings because I have read a lot of good reviews about them. I have also heard that because of there metal baseplates they can interfere with the flex of the board. Does anyone have any experience with these bindings who can explain how much flex you could expect to loose, if any? I do not do a whole lot of park riding so it might not make a big difference.
