evo-r for presses?

ive been riding for a few years but have always had a stiff board like the k2 wilie yli-luoma and the burton clash..but ive wanted to get a nicer board and wanna go a little softer for doing butters and presses on boxes and all that good stuff lol..i spend alot of time in the park but ride the whole mountain as well goofing off so i was wondering is the never summer08-09 evo-r very flexible? ive never rode or touched a ns board before. thanks for any replies

The Evo-R is badass! Just search around as they get talked about a lot. There are also pictures of Evo's getting pressed etc. It's a great board, I love mine!

Sounds like the Never Summer SLR might be right up your alley

Did you just call a Burton Clash stiff? Really? If you think that's stiff go with a Circuit R then.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

Here's a photo of me on an 09 Evo-R (a demo) at Breck last season- I ended up buying one (on pro-form luckily) and I love it!

Well it's a very soft jib board.

yeah i have an artifact..

its almost like they boiled up some angel hair spaghetti and injected it into the core. super easy to press and dick around on, you can butter effortlessly down entire trails on your way to the park. it does have some fun low speed pop in it even thou its so soft.
