Default flex

hello i'm new to this fourm but have been boarding for about 5 years now and have been using the cheaper boards but good names like burton. I have been finding that i want flex and alot of it. but i don't know what board or what brand to buy. i have also been looking at lib tech and don't kno wmuch about them. so my question is which board has a lot of flex and isn't a rediculas price like 1000 dollars!

If you're looking at Lib Tech boards also take a look at Gnu. They are both built by the same company (Mervin Manufacturing) and the Gnu boards are more affordable overall. The Gnu Carbon Hi-Beams are the best bang for the buck and have a good amount of flex, great for all mountain and park riding.

Why do you want so much flex, if you don't mind me asking?

well all of the boards a have owned are the tipickal 200-250 dollar board that is very stiff. I have riden boards that have a lot of flex and there just more fun to ride... I thought that they were easyer for jumping and you can manual pretty high on rails and stuff.

If so, think about all of the riding you do, because if you like to ride all mountain and bomb hills at speed, a super soft board will not be fun for this as the chatter will be terrible and it wont carve for shit. Ideally, a noodle for park and a mid stiff longer board for all mountain and off piste.
Snowolf is right on the dot. If you're looking for a freeride board, then don't go flexy, you'll hate it. If you're going for a park board you want something with a moderate amount of flex, but if you'll be hitting any major kickers you'll need some stiffness. If you're going to be doing nothing but jibbing then you want lots of flex. I have a Kink, and it's got amazing flex. Other boards to look at, as johan said, are the K2 WWW and the Rome Artifact.

the www and artifact are much softer than the carbon high beam. the carbon is actually quite stiff for a park deck
