Ground trick board

hey guys

I have been snowboarding for years now, but always free ride, so i wanna do something else.
I wanna learn ground tricks and do buttering and so... just having fun.

In the shop they recommended me the 'Nitro Subzero'. But I wanna have your opinion,

- is this a good board for buttering and ground tricks? (reading from the reviews I would say yes )
- and do you guys know have some better suggestions?

thanks

Try a K2 WWW or a Signal Park Rocker

If you already have your main board for free riding, you could just buy a cheap smaller board somewhere just for buttering around and file down the edges. The cheaper the board, the less you'll feel bad about wrecking it

For new boards the Rome Artifact is a good choice.

hehe true true I was searching the internet a little more and found some cheap Flow quantum 2009 boards.
would you prefer the flow above the nitro sub zero?

I think the Subzero would be better for buttering around than the Quantum. Just be sure to take off those sharp edges

Why would you rather buy the subzero?
taking off the sharp edges?

A softer flex profile makes it easier to press and do other freestyle tricks on the ground. Also for jibbing (hitting non-snow features), you don't want sharp edges that'll make you catch while sliding and potential hurt yourself. I think the Subzero comes with a 3 degree base bevel too which raises the side edges off of the snow. This helps in preventing such hangups on jibs and also makes your turning less "catchy". Good luck on your decision!

So the Subzero is more flexible then the flow quantum?

what is the best sidecut for ground tricks?
11.1/7/11.1
or
8.5/7.6/8.5

any other great ground trick boards i'm missing?

a mellower sidecut will be more playful but if you're buying a board made for buttering you shouldnt have to worry about the sidecut too much.
