Sierra Reverse Crew Freestyle?

I am from northern Minnesota and didn't really get to snowboard a whole lot. I am 5 hours from the nearest hill even worth going to. Practiced a little freestyle when I went here. I bought a Sierra Reverse Crew end of last year mostly for cruising around when I go to Montana and hopping off various mountain features. Now I got a job 20 minutes from a decent hill. Cruising around the hills of MN gets old fast and now that I am a lot closer to a decent hill and can go all the time I want to focus on freestyle pretty much exclusively. I am decent at jumps but really want to improve on boxes and rails. My question is should I sell my Crew and get a freestyle board or can my crew handle it? Also I have Burton P1's from I think 07 or 08. Would I be better off getting a softer binding.

the reverse camber shape of the reverse crew makes it very fun for all aspects of freestyle snowboarding. The reverse crew is not a super soft jib board, so it will be stiffer that boards like the k2 www or burton blunt. This is ok, because the reverse camber helps with technical tricks.

the reverse crew excels on jumps and for powerful riders.

enjoy your new job!

Thanks. Took me 13 months to finally land a job that utilizes my degree. So I'm pretty excited.
