I pick Bataleon "Fun Kink"

Fluid picks Never Summer "Evo"

( =


But really though, I'm not huge into jibs and stuff so I can't really speak on it. But the boards I've mentioned are more options to make things even more difficult for you!

Ah the gigantic foot thing is pretty key....

I bought the Ride NRC bindings and you can literally raise your foot up with those bindings... Again I'm no jib king but depending on the size of your feet, those bindings may help. I wear a size 14 and I do ride a wide board. There's not a huuuuge difference between normal width boards and wide models. So how big are you boats?

Wide Parkstar is my suggestion. Rockered Darkstar, still a good jump board but the rocker makes presses easier.

Snowboarding Is...

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

Oh sorry, I could see how you could be confused. My girl actually rides the Funk Kink as an All Mountain board.... I have "The Jam" and it's a 161 wide. However I'm positive I could get away with a non wide on the Ride NRC bindings...

Have you thought about the Bataleon Goliath? I've never ridden one, but it's supposed to be a sick "do it all" kind of board and comes in a 157 wide.

Sounds like the Never Summer Revolver may be something you should look at heavily though. It's the wider version of the Evo.

Ride Machete is getting some good reviews... And I'm just anti Libtech/GNU. It seems like eeeeeeverybody has one or the other and I would much rather not have the same stick as half of the mountain. That's the ultimate reason as to why I went with Bataleon over Never Summer is because a shit load of people in CO have NS sticks also. My personal opinion is that NS and Bataleon have the best technologies in the biz..

gawd damnit stop adding boards to my list:P i was getting it narrowed down lol. yeah that makes sense now. i don't really care if its a "do it all board" cause i have a board and its still in good condition but its not really the best for park and its too long. i just want a board thats got good pop but can lock into the grinds decently.
