1 is the softest and the highest number is the hardest

park boards are softer so that u can do tricks on them, butters, presses, etc
All mountain boards are stiffer so that u can be in more control of them at higher speeds.

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

^^^ As well, I think the 1-10 feel rating is only used on burton boards. I don't know if any other companies have adopted this scale, I could be wrong though. 1-10 = soft-stiff

'10 CustomX / '10 Co2 EST

so a good all around board is one between 4-6 in the scale. I have seen this scale on a lot of brands.
What is better softer or firmer? i know depends on what you want to do but just all around good board?

yea anything thats pretty much between a 3 - 6 is not bad to learn on. Even after u progress on a softer board, u can still use it as an all mtn board.

Harder boards have no room for errors. If u get away with barely catching an edge on a softer board, then if the samething would happen on a harder board, youll pretty much be eating shit. Softer boards are more forgiving and a stiffer board is what u want to get after u progress becasue ull appreciate the board more

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless
