Default Advice needed for a good park/butter board

Sup guys,

Im on my 4th season of riding, and I'm now comfortable enough that I want to start getting creative. My main board is a gnu carbon credit 156w..2010 model I believe, had it since day one. Today I tried doing some buttering and the board just felt heavy and stiff as hell...maybe it's my lack of experience...but I wasn't having an easy time at all.

I own two other boards, through trades and debts owed, curious if either is good.

150 burton nug restricted CAMBER
155 Arbor del ray

I figured the nug, but being it's the camber version I'm wondering if even that isnt good.

Keep in mind, I'm 5'11 220lbs

how stiff is it? you can butter a cambered board, it's just a little harder.

Lean harder. Buying a board for buttering is retarded.

I haven't even tried on the camber nug, just assumed it being camber would make it much less ideal. My gnu carbon carbon credit was the stiff one...things like a brick lol

Read closer. Assuming is equally retarded.

With the information provided...... "Buttering" is the only example of riding you gave... and is the only thing for anyone to go off of. Why don't you tell us what you're looking for in a snowboard.. hmm?

i forgot to say this earlier but a 156 is a little small for someone in your weight range. but that should make it easier to butter. the carbon credit isn't that stiff. i think it has a medium flex. it's probably just inexperience.

Fair enough...yes buttering is part of what I wanna do..but overall just park, jibbing, jumps etc

The older model that I have is a lot stiffer than the newer ones apparently. It's also just a heavy board. Yea, when I bought this board I was 205...def packed on some old man weight lol. Even when I was trying to wheelie the thing, it literally took me putting everything I got...and I'm no weak unatheletic fat kid, I squat and dead lift 400 plus daily...I'm more of a meathead ��
