Need a stiff board...

that is not directional. I have a directional board right now and find that switch is a bit strange.. but when I actually switch around the bindings my switch is fine. Looking to get a decent twin board that is not geared towards park (ie. stiff and stable).

I like my Never Summer Legacy-r its stiff and not tapered. The inserts are setback. Not sure what you mean by not directional

I think by "not directional" he means true twin. I'd suggest the Bataleon Riot.

Palmer Timeless

I'm on a Palmer Timeless right now and love it for freeriding. It's my first time not going with a directional freeride board and am really enjoying it. The Timeless is designed to be ridden centered so switch and regular feel pretty much identical which is what I was looking for as I split my time 50/50 between switch and regular.

Bataleon Riot
Forum Seeker
Atomic Alibi
Morrow RV (I picked one up for super cheap at the local Ski Swap for the same reason, and as a rock board)

Just something all mountain would be good.

set your bindings up more neutral so that riding switch isnt as wierd of a stance. How bout 9 and 12? thats how mine are asnd switch is no issue
