jibsticks

i know nothing about the 2010 lineup, but seeing as how i snapped my kink last year, i've got to get a new board!

artifact, kink, www (rocked or reg)


all of them are close enough in price, not looking to spend much more.


any major changes this year i should know of?

thanks guys <3

I freakin love my SubPop for a jib board, highly recommend it.

But since your used to Ride, mabye check the Crush.

But my favorite board on jibs so far has been a sized very small Stairmaster.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

The circuit-r is never summers softest board, but still not a jibstick. I would love to have a signal park rocker to test out, but in the shop its super soft and has insane rocker. I give a thumbs up to my WWW as well.

Thanks Snow, I'll most definitely look into it.

BA, I ride Greek Peak (not sure if you know of it or not), so I'm willing to go stupid soft, basically. I hit kickers, but not many, and not much. 45ft is about as big Greek gets. Shit, last year I think the biggest was 30, so nothing huge at all.

Oh I know the Greek Peak I drove past it once and pointed, then booked it to Vermont!

If you want stupid soft rocker then something like the WWW could be the way to go, that's just meat and potato's right there nothing special. But if you're looking to get a bit more pop out of the deck and hit some jumps I'd recommend checking out the Technine Enforcer, Artifact 85, Parkstar, Circuit R. Those are fun sticks to jib on that you can get press nasty but still have pop to them.

Awesome. I'll be checking those out then, because I sure do enjoy some pop. I've always heard the WWW was just stupid soft and nothing else, which is the reason I've been so hesitant to try it. Thanks much BA, always appreciate your input.

No worries man if you're going rocker you want to check and make sure the board has either bamboo or carbon fiber in the tips to compensate for the loose feel.
