Advice on a buttering/jib board
Hi guys, I was hoping someone could lend me some advice on a fun jib/butter board. I currently have a gnu park pickle 150cm, with union force bindings and 32 lashed boots. I am 5' 6", weigh 140-145lbs, and have a size 8.5 boot. When I bought this setup, I was more interested in park/jumps and all around riding. However now that I primarily board with my girlfriend, I find myself on groomers most of the time; constantly looking for small hits here and there and doing some buttering. However, I find presses and buttering on my current board a bit harder than i would like and was wondering if getting a softer board would be more for me. I was doing some research and came across boards like Disaster, Airobic, Signal Park Rocker, NS Evo 4, Lobster, and others. These look to be much softer than my park pickle and a lot more fun, but I have never rode this type of board before so would these type of boards be okay for the type of riding I am doing and would I need to change my binding and boots as well as get a different length board than what I currently ride?
Percentage of time spent on various slopes would be:
60% groomers at medium speeds, no straight lining, just swift cruising
30% groomers finding various things to jump off of and buttering
10% park, mostly smaller jumps and jibs.
I appreciate any feedback and thanks
