Default would you recommend this board to a beginner ((DC CORE MLF)

DC Core MLF Snowboard from Dogfunk.com

I am a beginner still and really do not plan doing any jumps/tricks/etc, just hitting the slopes thats all. I just found a really good deal on this board for around $195 shipped. They say this is a freestyle board, will that effect me on the slopes?


i hear this flow board is a very good beginner board also

not sure what to do, a part of me is also thinking about holding off until the end of the season to find better deals, what do you guys think..my price range for the board is around 200

$195 shipped for the DC MLF? Thats a steal. I know 2 people on this board and they really like it a lot. Some people on this forum say they're made cheaply but I have never personally heard any complaints. You'll be fine learning on this board. The only thing that really makes it "freestyle" is its twin shape and flex. All mountain boards are a little stiffer and set back which wont make a difference to you until you develop a preference of what you like to ride. Buy the DC and enjoy.

Yep, it was on Brociety last night. It is still in my shopping cart and is still letting me purchase it . I believe it might be the 09 model though.

Unless something has changed recently, it won't let you complete the order. You'll just have to wait until it pops up again.
