capita indoor survival fk 2011 or stepchild joe sexton pro model

i'm looking to get my first board this year but can't decide between the capita indoor survival fk 2011 or stepchild joe sexton pro model, right now i'm leaning towards the indoor survival just because i've read a lot of positive reviews on it but i can't find any reviews on the joe sexton pro model, maybe no one out there has demoed the joe sexton pro model yet but i'm very curious about this board...if anybody has useful information about these boards please share...thank you.

i rode the Indoor 156 FK last season. It rode like a lot of reverse camber boards- great for jibbing, weaving in and out of trees lines, pressing was a blast and it rode well in powder which was great cause I took it out with me to Squaw and Alpine Meadows where we got pounded with 2 and half feet of fresh. Reverse camber is not going to be good blasting thru crud and hauling ass up and down the mt- at least nowhere near as stable as a camber board. If you like mostly jibbing and smaller park jumps try the Horrorscope FK- that is a super fun board. The Indoor is stiffer in the middle of the board and is going to let you hit the bigger jumps but is still awesome for jibbing. If you're going to use it in pow size up- the longer the better.

Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse

cant go wrong with the indoor FK man, i bought last years model and rode it all last season and loved it!! it did everything i wanted it too, just was alittle loose on big landings and alittle chattery at high speeds but thats only thing i could say wasnt awsome about it...great all around board!

i'm still fairly new at snowboarding, i don't quite have the skills to be jibbing, do big landings and weaving in an out of tree lines, i guess right now i'm more of a "freeride" kind of guy, basically i only wanted the indoor survival and joe sexton pro model because i think the graphics are sick, but anyway after reading both your comments i decided to do more research and came across the ride machete 2011, would you guys say that it is a more all around board and probably better for my skill set?

the machete is a great all around board for everything too, its probally alittle stiffer then the 2 other boards ur looking at... also consider this, if ur not gna be doin tons of jibbing, consider the indoor survival cambered version

If I were you I would look at the Stairmaster if you're looking at CAPiTA. Its a forgiving board but with camber you can still get going.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends
