Default Butter on a Ride DH

I keep hearing how the Ride DH is such a sick board and how people get crazy pop off of it. Does anyone know if it is soft enough for buttering? I wanted to get a freestyle board that i can butter on but people keep raving about this board. Anyone know how buttering on this would compare with a prospect (which i currently have and have a hard time flexing)

any board can be buttered, the question is. can you butter a ride DH?

the answer is, yes. anyone can. its rather easy. any park oriented board will be able to be buttered with ease

I regret to inform you that you can not butter a Ride DH but you can Margarine it no problem. It's not as smooth as butter it's a bit more oily.

The DH has, IMO, a soft tip and tail, so you should be able to press it. And as RidePowder noted, you can press any board.

no body think that the ride dh is too stiff to butter? i'm just paraniod that i'll be stuck with a board that i can only butter for a split second cuz its too stiff.

I mean i want a really soft butter board like a k2 www or rome artifact but i still want something stiff enough to ride all mountain.

also when you say "butter" do you mean doing a tail/nose manual while going straight down the hell? or do you actually try to go down the hill sideways while buttering?
